West Ham Reserves 2 Reading Reserves 1

West Ham fielded a side featuring Boa Morte, Tomkins, Collison and Reid. Collison opened the scoring for West Ham in the 28th minute, playing a neat one-two with Boa Morte on the edge of the penalty area before curling the ball into the far corner of the goal.

West Ham's second was an own goal from Sonko whose over hit backpass gave the Reading keeper no chance. The own goal came in the 40th minute.

Reading dominated most of the second half, piling on pressure to get back into the game but a solid performance by the defence and some good goalkeeping from Adam Street denied Reading until injury time. It was about two minutes into added on time when Reading scored. The goal came from Kitson's conversion of a Sigurdsson cross.
