Mills hands Royals famous win

Published Add your comment

Captain Matt Mills struck the only goal as Championship Reading claimed another notable scalp with a 1-0 victory over Everton to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals for a second successive year.

Mills fired home after 26 minutes of Tuesday night's fifth-round tie at Goodison Park to put the Royals, who knocked out Liverpool en route to the last eight in 2010, within a game of Wembley.

Jimmy Kebe should have made victory more comfortable but goalkeeper Alex McCarthy also proved a hero with a stunning late save from Leon Osman.
