General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 J. Defoe gets yellow.
Big shouts for a penalty with the last kick of the game as Gallas clatters in to a Reading man in the box. Webb isn't convinced and blows for full time.
90' +1 GOAL! Reading (Robson-Kanu) 1-3 Tottenham
90' H. Robson-Kanu has scored a goal for Reading! Assist by A. Le Fondre.
Andros Townsend, who just came home, does well to skip past a defender and clips a inviting ball for Defoe. The little striker gets his volley wrong and fails to complete his hat-trick.
Consolation late on for Reading. Le Fondre goes for the chip over Friedel which is on the way out for a corner before Hal Robson-Kanu arrives just in time to leap up and tap home on the volley.
88' A. Townsend enters the game and replaces A. Lennon.
Right on cue, after I comment on Reading's lack of a shot on target Le Fondre duly obliges to get them off the mark on that particular scoreboard at least.
87' OFF THE LINE! Gallas intervenes on the line as Le Fondre tries to poke one home on the half-volley. Spurs clinging on to the clean sheet while Reading look to give their supporters something to shout about.
85' Tottenham have had 19 attempts on goal, to Reading's two. With nine on target for Spurs and a bit fat zero for the hosts. That pretty much sums up this afternoon's match.
83' H. Robson-Kanu enters the game and replaces D. Guthrie.
N. Hunt enters the game and replaces P. Pogrebnyak.
No pressure on the ball what so ever from Reading now, Spurs knocking it about with ease.
80' Reading have gone right off the boil, Tottenham are in complete command. Three-nil, three points, it looks like a first win and a job well done for Andre Villas-Boas and his side.
78' C. Dempsey enters the game and replaces G. Bale.
77' Gareth Bale gets applauded off by the away fans and Clint Dempsey comes on to make his Tottenham debut, receiving a hearty reception from the traveling fans in the process.
