Not a great match, but a vital win for Reading. West Ham were frustratingly lacklustre, but Brian McDermott will care not one jot. I hope that you have enjoyed the coverage, and give me follow on the Twitter machine @danielstorey85
As Reading break, Nolan brings down Robson-Kanu and gets the seventh booking of the game. Nolan will now be suspended for the game against Norwich
Noble replaced by Maiga
Finally Reading get out of defence and enjoy some possession in the West Ham half, it is ended with a loose challenge by Harte, who is booked
Kebe is replaced, often frustrating today. He is replaced by Robson-Kanu
James Tomkins was also shown a yellow card for dissent
Vaz Te on for West Ham
Noel Hunt comes on for Guthrie. What has Adam Le Fondre done wrong?
Pearce booked for an aerial challenge on Nolan. There was a slight leading arm
Collison is on for West Ham in place of Matt Taylor
And that's half time. Join us in fifteen minutes for the second period. So far it's advantage Reading against a lacklustre West Ham
Michael Oliver gives James Collins a yellow card to cap off a dreadful half for the defender
Pogrebnyak is booked for a fairly industrial aerial challenge
Mark Noble slides in and fouls Kebe, and receives the first yellow of the game
GOALL!!! 1-0 Reading
Oh go one then, I'll treat you, one more, this time from Conner Keane - 'I reckon that today is the day the royals get another win, 2-1 to reading!'
Our final twitter line before kick off, and it's Carlton Cole fan Peter Shields - 'I think Carlton Cole will make the difference today, he's a top striker who is bang in form - 1-3 West Ham'. Ballsy stuff.
James Chapman has a view from the other side of the fence, but still with goalscoring thoughts: 'This will be Reading's day after a nail-biting match. Disappointed ALF hasn't been given a start. 3-2 Reading'
Shane Donnelly on Twitter has other, more hopeful, ideas: 'Hoping for a high scoring game but unfortunately can see it being nil all. Hoping big Carlton Cole can snatch one!'
