Pavel Pogrebnyak's late backheel saw Reading come out 3-2 winners in an enthralling third-round Capital One Cup tie at QPR in which they twice had to come from behind.

QPR got off to a great start when Junior Hoilett scored a superb solo effort 14 minutes in, although Kaspars Gorkss levelled things up against his former club minutes later.

The 1967 League Cup winners regained the lead when Djibril Cisse fired home from distance, but Nicky Shorey's superb 25-yard free-kick saw Reading draw level and provided a platform for them to snatch victory as Pogrebnyak backheeled home nine minutes from time.
