James Harper ended Reading´s run of eight consecutive Barclays Premier League defeats in dramatic fashion by striking a 90th-minute winner past Mark Schwarzer and claiming a 1-0 win.

A dreadful game looked destined for a stalemate until Stephen Hunt stole down the left flank and sent in a cross which Harper met with a cool strike past the Boro keeper.

Boro had felt aggrieved when Stewart Downing was denied a 77th-minute penalty and was instead booked for diving under Marek Matejovsky´s challenge, while Gary O´Neil fired over the bar.
