Reading's owner-in-waiting, Anton Zingarevich, will be confident his millions have been well spent after his first official visit to the Madejski Stadium resulted in a 1-0 win over Burnley.

Zingarevich, whose consortium Thames Sports Investment is set to finalise a reported £40million takeover of the Royals next month, jetted into Berkshire for the first time since the deal to purchase a majority shareholding in the club was announced.

And the Russian tycoon, educated at nearby Bearwood College, witnessed Jason Roberts' first-half strike secure the three points necessary to take Reading up to third place in the npower Championship.
