The hosts were then reduced to 10 men after a South Reading player received his second yellow card of the match.

With five minutes of the match remaining substitute Ryan Corbett, who came on at half-time for Andy Taylor, played a through ball to Dean Jordan who raced from the half-time line before firing home the winning goal.
