Adam Le Fondre came off the bench to fire Reading ever closer to the Barclays Premier League with a 3-1 win at promotion rivals Southampton.

The former Rotherham striker proved decisive after coming on in the 64th minute, netting twice to help the Royals to victory in an intense npower Championship match the hosts had edged.

Jason Roberts headed the visitors ahead after 19 minutes but Rickie Lambert levelled three minutes into the second half.
