Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +2 Reading are just winding the clock down now and have taken the sting out of Fulham's late push for a consolation goal.
90' Four minutes have been added as McCarthy is forced into another save.
89' The visitors are just withstanding a late Fulham onslaught. Rodallega tries an overhead-kick but doesn't connect properly. However, it falls to Kacaniklic, who beats McCarthy but it is blocked on the line by Morrison.
88' Tim Poole at Craven Cottage: "How is that not 4-3? Hugo Rodallega and Dimitar Berbatov are yards away from an empty net but the ball is eventually cleared. Meanwhile, Bryan Ruiz cuts inside and crosses but McCarthy is there to save again. This is scintillating."
Rodallega's header flicks the outside of the post from a Kacaniklic cross as we enter the final minutes. It's been a brilliant game and an excellent advertisement for the so-called end of season "dead rubber".
87' E. Enoh gets yellow.
85' Fulham continue to search for a way back into this game and given Reading's defensive record, this game might not be over just yet. Berbatov wins a free-kick on the edge of the area but Ruiz blasts the set-piece over the bar.
84' A. Mariappa gets yellow.
83' J. Karacan has scored a goal for Reading! Assist by A. Le Fondre.
GOAL! That should surely ensure three points for the visitors. Jem Karacan drills a low shot past Schwarzer after Hangeland's poor defensive header.
82' Daniel Carriço enters the game and replaces H. Robson-Kanu.
Robson-Kanu comes off, to be replaced by Daniel Carrico
It's been a brilliant game as both sides have attacked with freedom. Reading deserve their lead as Fulham haven't got out of second gear this afternoon. The home fans are urging their side forward as we head into the last ten minutes.
80' The Cottagers are just inches from leveling things up as Rodallega hits a tremendous strike on the bounce inside the box, but sees his effort come back off the crossbar.
