Minute   Description
90' +4 McCleary luckily wins a throw-in after he appeared to handle the ball on the right flank, but the Royals are unable to capitalise.
Full Time at the Hawthorns, finishing 1-0 to West Brom thanks to Romelu Lukaku, as Reading head home having lost their last three Premier League matches.
90' +1 West Brom neatly exchange passes in the centre of the pitch before attempting to find a forward, rather than simply running the clock down.

88' Robson-Kanu slips as he attempts to control a ball flicked on inside the box after good work by McAnuff.
87' Reading commit more players forward and as Alex Pearce nervily tries to hold off Shane Long after receiving the ball in his own half, he wins a free kick after the Irish forward is judged to have committed a foul.
85' Reading are growing more direct in attempting to force an equaliser as the match draws to a close attacking down the wings or through balls over the top to Noel Hunt and Adam Le Fondre, but West Brom are holding firm and look likely to hold out for the win.
82' Hal Robson-Kanu heads onto the top of the net with a looping header after beating Billy Jones at the back post to McCleary's left-footed cross from the right wing.
80' H. Robson-Kanu enters the game and replaces C. Gunter.
