Back To Reality With Second Straight Defeat

Reading suffered their second successive defeat against a feisty Preston side who have now won four away games in a row. The three goal margin of victory flattered North End but Reading only have themselves to blame for this disappointing result. Had Lucas Joao taken one of the two gilt-edged second half chances which came his way before Preston's opening goal, it might have been a very different story. It was an indifferent performance from the Royals and Preston took full advantage. After taking the lead on sixty-four minutes they added two further goals on the break with long balls forward after winning possession deep in their own half. Reading are still three points clear at the top of the league but they will need to improve quickly if they are to stay there.
