Australian goalkeeper Adam Federici produced an excellent performance to help Reading beat Brighton 1-0 as the Royals moved back level on points with npower Championship leaders Southampton.

Having survived an early Brighton onslaught, Reading took the lead in the 14th minute with their first attack, Ian Harte's free-kick taking a huge deflection to wrong-foot Albion goalkeeper Peter Brezovan.

Vicente struck the bar as Brighton responded before the home side missed a glorious chance to level in the 51st minute when Ashley Barnes had his penalty saved by Federici, who made several more fine stops.
