  1. And that's full-time. It may be a cliché but a real game of two halves at Upton Park, with West Ham allowing a two-goal lead to slip before having too much for Reading. Hope you've enjoyed the commentary, and have a wonderful summer waiting for August. Give me a follow on twitter at @danielstorey85, it's the least you can do!

  2. 88

    I have to say, this game has been cracking. As Richard Grocott said before kick off, a classic!

  3. 87

    And that, he says, is that. But well done to Kevin Nolan, now West ham's top scorer and a hat-trick.

  4. 86

    Goal for Nolan, and that's his hat-trick. No marking from Maiga's cross and he heads home comfortably.

  5. Matt Taylor on for Joey O'Brien

  6. 85

    Mark Noble shoots, but it's a comfortable save for McCarthy

  7. 84

    Jack Collison now booked for a challenge on Karacan

  8. 83

    Kevin Nolan booked for a tackle from behind. No malice but something of a lunge.

  9. 81

    Maiga on for Vaz Te

  10. 80

    And so after good work from Reading, they again allow the game to slip away. Story of the season, I'm afraid. Too many goals conceded.

  11. 79

    Fine clipped ball through from Mark Noble, and Nolan finishes with ease.

  12. 78

    Goal for West Ham. Second of the game for captain Kevin Nolan.

  13. 76

    Reading now enjoying a spell of pressure, but too often their final cross just over or under hit as they look for an unlikely winner.

  14. Joe Cole replaced by Jack Collison

  15. 74

    A dipping shot from Carroll after ball bounces high at the back post. Decent effort, but comfortably over.

  16. 73

    Joe Cole's shot is deflected wide, as the Hammers try and push on for a winner.

  17. 71

    Carroll gets through on the left hand side, but fine defending from Kelly sees the ball behind for a corner

  18. 69

    Vaz Te has had a shot which might well have left Upton Park, shanking it incredibly high over the bar. Rather sums up West Ham's second half.

  19. 68

    Reading have a 3-on-2 break against West Ham, but just can't pick the right pass to engineer a chance on goal.

  20. 66

    Gunter this time wastes the cross, but Sam Allardyce is patrolling the touchline, barking orders at his players.
