Leeds United moved to the top of the table with a late goal to deny Reading a point they had worked so hard to achieve. The goal came from a very quick counter attack after John Swift's free kick from just outside the box had been saved by the Leeds 'keeper Casilla. United streamed forward in numbers catching the Royals off guard. Costa's deflected cross was headed in from close range by Jack Harrison at the far post. It was a cruel blow for Reading who had defended magnificently against a Leeds side who had played some superb passing football throughout the game.
