Consistency is the key to success in any sport, and Reading came up short at home again as their stuttering start to the season continues with a fifth defeat in their six league games at the Madejski Stadium this season. Credit has to be given to a Rangers side having a similarly difficult time for a classic away performance. They simply played with an energy which the Royals did not match. The tone was set in the opening minutes when Kelly was caught in possession just inside his own half and immediately Reading's back four were under pressure. Rangers continued to stifle Reading's attempts to attack and passed and moved with a fluidity which should have given them a half time lead. The goal they threatened to score eventually came in the sixty-fourth minute when Leinster hammered home in a goalmouth scramble following a corner. The visitors then managed the game well sitting on a slender lead successfully to take all three points.
