Long hits winner

Reading 1 West Brom 0

Reading striker Shane Long continued his marvellous recent form as Roberto Di Matteo's love affair with the FA Cup took an unwanted turn.





Long made it seven goals in six games with a cool finish before half-time while Albion substitute Jonas Olsson was booked twice within 15 minutes of coming on at the break to add to the Premier League side's woes.

Boaz Myhill was handed a rare start after Scott Carson's costly blunder at Craven Cottage in midweek But West Brom's problems at the back were again ruthlessly exposed.

Noel Hunt won a flick-on and Long was able to cruise past stand-in centre-half Gianni Zuiverloon and steer beyond Myhill.
