  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Brighton and Hove Albion
    • Reading
    • 21:42 So Reading go back level on points with Southampton at the top of the table while Brighton remain just outside the play-off places.
    • 90'+4 LuaLua with another shot that flies over the bar and there's the final whistle! Reading have survived a real test at Brighton, but they've hung on to take all three points thanks to Ian Harte's deflected free-kick!
    • 90' Four minutes of added time at The Amex.
    • 90' Vokes with a close-range header, Federici falls on the ball inches from the line!
    • 88' Great ball by LuaLua which whips across the Reading goalmouth, Vokes can't react quickly enough to get anything on it!
    • 86' Vicente plays it short to LuaLua! Blazed over the bar!! What a waste that was!
    • 85' Handball by Pearce as LuaLua jinks the ball past him. This is right on the edge of the box! Great chance for Brighton!
    • 84' Alan Navarro fires low through a crowd of players but Federici gets everything behind it!
    • 83' Double sub for Albion. Mackail-Smith and Barnes are off for Sam Vokes and Gai Assulin respectively.
    • 81' Harte with a cross and Alex Pearce sees his thumping header rebound off the Brighton crossbar!
    • 79' And that's Hunt's last contribution. Off he comes and Simon Church is on for Reading.
    • 77' Reading on a break through Jimmy Kebe as Brighton commit men forward, lays it off to Hunt, good block by El-Abd!
    • 75' LuaLua with an air shot as a cross completely eludes the Brighton sub!
    • 72' Gorkss with a route one clearance finds Roberts, he drives clear of the Brighton defence, finds Hunt, but he delays his shot and the chance goes begging!
    • 67' LuaLua and Mackail-Smith link up. LuaLua makes the space and shoots but it's blocked and behind for a Brighton corner. In it comes, Greer rises, but can't make proper contact. Relief for Reading!
    • 65' LuaLua is on. Buckley is the man who's made way.
    • 61' Vicente again with a shot that goes over Federici's bar! Brighton pressing the Royals back!
    • 60' Brynjay Gunnarsson is on for Reading's Cywka and Kazenga LuaLua is poised to come on for the Seagulls.
    • 59' Barnes finds Mackail-Smith! He scuffs his shot and almost deceives Federici who makes another good stop!
    • 57' Shaun Cummings tries his luck for the Royals but never looked confident and the ball goes well wide.
    • 55' Kebe with a neat flick to Roberts, who cuts inside on the left but blazes over Brezovan's crossbar from some 15 yards out! Did all the hard work there! Poor finish by the Reading man!
    • 54' Hayden Mullins takes advantage of some Brighton dithering to drive at the Albion defence only to run out of steam at the death and lose the ball.
    • 52' It's a corner and it's Federici with another superb stop!!
    • 51' Barnes picks himself up and shoots to the right!! Federici saves it!! Great stop!
    • 50' Barnes hits the deck under Pearce's challenge! Brighton have a penalty!
    • 49' In it comes, flicks off Pearce's head, hits the unaware Gorkss and falls nicely into Brezovan's arms!
    • 48' Great run by Jason Roberts for Reading! Powers into the box and wins a corner out of nothing!
    • 46' And we're back underway!
    • 45' That's the last action of the half at The Amex. It's Brighton 0 Reading 1, courtesy of Ian Harte's deflected free-kick!
    • 45' Great save by Brezovan!! Hunt rises well and plants his header low, but Brezovan dives to his left and stretches out a hand to palm the ball away!!
    • 43' Gary Dicker wastes a good opportunity for Brighton by blazing well over!
    • 41' Two yellow cards in quick succession at The Amex. El-Abd goes into the book for dissent and Reading's Jimmy Kebe follows!
    • 39' Barnes to VICENTE!! Off the crossbar by the Spaniard!! Vicente Rodriguez has been at the centre of everything for the Seagulls tonight!
    • 38' Yellow card for Ian Harte for taking down Buckley. Free-kick to Brighton.
    • 32' Yellow card for Greer for a foul on Jason Roberts. That's the first of the match.
    • 28' Ian Harte with another Reading corner that causes problems in the Brighton box. The ref calls a halt as Greer is fouled by Pearce.
    • 27' Roberts and El-Abd have a shoving match. Roberts raises his hands and needs to be careful. No card for the Reading man this time!
    • 25' Inigo Calderon lets Noel Hunt run at the Brighton defence, he has Greer for company and eventually lets fly, but the ball is always curling away from Brezovan's goal! Signs that Reading are finding their feet and they lead 1-0!
    • 23' Ian Harte sends in a dangerous corner, Vicente puts it behind for another corner. Alex Pearce and Roberts link up, into the side0netting from Pearce! Albion are playing well, but they look vulnerable to set-pieces!
    • 20' Ashley Barnes hits the deck now. Gus Poyet signals his frustration as another free-kick isn't given but the Albion man was looking for that one!
    • 16' Craig Mackail-Smith goes down in the box! Again the ref signals play on to howls from the Brighton fans! Looked a close decision that one!
    • 15' Buckley cuts the ball back for Vicente, the Spaniard appeals for a penalty as the ball strikes Kaspars Gorkss, nothing doing says the ref, but the ball falls to Gary Dicker who fires over the bar!
    • 14' GOAL READING!! It's Ian Harte with a free-kick just outside the box, looks to curl it inside the post, but the ball takes a massive deflection off the wall and leaves Brezovan stranded! Brighton 0 Reading 1!
    • 12' Brezovan gets nowhere near Ian Harte's corner and Craig Mackail-Smith has to make the clearance!
    • 10' Vicente goes for goal from outside the box, Federici watches it move in the air and makes a comfortable save in the end.
    • 8' Gordon Greer is caught napping, Jason Roberts nips in but Brighton keeper Peter Brezovan is out quickly to snuff out the danger!
    • 5' Will Buckley does well to carve out a chance for Ashley Barnes who fires wide. The ball was just a touch behind him and the Albion man couldn't get the contact he wanted! The hosts have started well!
    • 4' Vicente Rodriguez floats the free-kick into the box, Ashley Barnes cuts it back, but there's no one following up and Adam Federici gathers at the second attempt.
    • 3' Adam El-Abd is letting Jason Roberts know he's about. And Brighton have a free-kick some 20 yards out.
    • 2' Brighton playing it around in the early stages. Alan Navarro is almost caught in possession and has to hustle to clear the danger.
    • 19:41 Quick name check for our refs tonight. Mick Russell is in charge at The Amex.
    • 19:30 And two changes for Brian McDermott's Royals. Hayden Mullins and Tomasz Cywka are in midfield following injuries to Jem Karacan and Mikele Leigertwood sustained in the 2-0 win against Leeds.
    • 19:25 So two changes for Brighton from the side that lost 1-0 at Burnley. Will Buckley and Ashley Barnes return at the expense of Joe Mattock and Sam Vokes, who is on the bench.
