Royals cause another shock

Published Add your comment

Reading produced another FA Cup upset as Gylfi Sigurdsson's late goal gave them a 1-0 victory over Burnley at the Madejski Stadium.

The Royals had won a replay at Liverpool in the last round, and added another Barclays Premier League scalp after a battling second-half display.

Sigurdsson, who had been a doubt because of a foot injury, latched onto a long ball into the penalty area with just three minutes left to send the Coca-Cola Championship side into the fifth round.
