The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

AS­TON Villa’s de­fen­sive dis­play left a lot to be de­sired as Read­ing cap­i­talised on a host of er­rors to run out com­fort­able win­ners.

The home side paid the price at the start of each half as they failed to get out of the blocks, and aside from James Ch­ester’s early equaliser, never re­ally looked like scor­ing twice as they wasted their only other few chances.

But for all of Villa’s many mis­takes, a clin­i­cal Read­ing were in no mood for mercy, mak­ing them pay at each and ev­ery op­por­tu­nity as their pro­mo­tion push got back on track ahead of to­mor­row’s match against Rother­ham.
