Reading recover to win

Published Add your comment

Reading came from a goal down to beat West Ham 4-2 in their npower Championship promotion clash at Upton Park.

Carlton Cole broke the deadlock for the Hammers in the ninth minute with a left-footed finish after a headed knockdown from Kevin Nolan, who had hit a post just seconds earlier. But Kaspars Gorkss headed home Ian Harte's inswinging corner in the 44th minute before Noel Hunt converted on the stroke of half-time to give the Royals the lead.

Harte added a penalty after 59 minutes to further stretch their advantage, but the hammers responded with a Ricardo Vaz Te header after 77 minutes. Mikele Leigertwood's strike six minutes from time eventually wrapped up the win for Reading, who move four points clear of their opponents in the second automatic promotion place.
