The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

READ­ING came out on top of in­trigu­ing en­counter be­tween two of the di­vi­sion’s in-form sides and Steve Clarke’s men were out­stand­ing in both boxes.

Clarke named a very at­tack­ing line up and the Roy­als’ front trio of Hal Rob­son-Kanu, Nick Blackman and Or­lando Sa did not give the Boro back-line any respite.

Rob­son Kanu was out­stand­ing, pro­vid­ing Wales boss Chris Coleman with a timely re­minder of his qual­ity ahead of vi­tal Euro 2016 qual­i­fiers.

At the other end Michael Hec­tor showed why Jose Mour­inho took him to Chelsea on trans­fer dead­line day.

Hec­tor and Paul McShane put up the shut­ters as Boro im­proved in the sec­ond half af­ter a dis­mal first half dis­play from Ai­tor Karanka’s side.
