  1. FT: Reading 0 Southampton 2.

  2. 90+2

    Do Prado spurns a golden chance to make it 3-0 at the death, with a wonderful run from Clyne taking him to the byline, as his cut back finds the striker who wildly blazes over the bar.

  3. 90

    Three added minutes of time to be played.

  4. 89

    Davis' sterling shift comes to an end, with Do Prado coming on in his place.

  5. 88

    A poor touch from Morrison allows Davis in, with a ricochet saving the defender as the ball rolls back to Federici.

  6. 87

    Lambert is found offside from Lallana's ball this time, with the Royals fans starting to head for the exits as the game draws to an end.

  7. 86

    Overly-aggressive hussling from Hunt on Schneiderlin sees another free-kick conceded, and another minute killed in Saints' minds as they look to see out the match.

  8. 85

    Rodriguez battles on as he takes on Mariappa, but the defender gets a touch to the ball, driving him away from goal as Reading eventually win a throw-in.

  9. 84

    Karacan hacks away following Rodriguez's hopeful ball from the byline into Lambert, with the crowd somewhat quitened following that neat spell from the visitors.

  10. 82

    Lallana finds the offside flag thwart his progress after looking to meet a ball down the right, but Lambert regains the ball for the visitors following the free-kick.

  11. 81

    Impressive possession play from Southampton sees them keep the ball, frustrating Reading, and dousing some cold water on the momentum they have built over the last five minutes.

  12. 79

    Another McAnuff corner comes in, but Boruc does much better this time, confidently claiming the ball ahead of the Reading centre-backs.

  13. 78

    More maverick goalkeeping from Boruc, whose juggling skills see him eventually gather the ball from a free-kick, with Reading finally upping their assertiveness in the final third.

  14. 77

    McAnuff takes on Shaw, creating a yard to shoot, which he does, but his rather tame effort is cleared away, with Reading fans finding their voices again following that incredible Boruc incident.

  15. 76

    Controversal scenes as Le Fondre heads the ball on, with Boruc incredibly catching it and taking the ball backwards, eventually pushing it away in his bid to prevent it crossing the line!

  16. 74

    Robson-Kanu is replaced by Hunt as Reading bolster their strike force with 15 minutes remaining.

  17. 72

    Could that be the final nail in Reading's Premier League coffin? A sublime ball from Schneiderlin sees Mariappa caught out of position, with Lallana found, who scores his 50th Saints goal with a neat finish past Federici.

  18. 72


  19. 71

    A delicious ball to the back post from Robson-anu sees Boruc come out, but he initially spills the ball, before charging through Karacan to eventually retrieve it.

  20. 69

    An audacious attempt from Rodriguez, 30 yards out, sails harmlessly wide, but it remains all Saints right now and Reading need to up their urgency if they are to carve out an equaliser.
