Reading Swindon Town
D.Henderson (80')
HT: 0-1 G.Grazioli (38'), D.Invincibile (52'), J.Kuffour (87')
Attendance:  14,389   Referee:  P. Taylor



 
After Giuliano Grazioli gives the Town a first half lead, a rare Danny Invincibile header doubles the lead early in the second half, despite numerous wasted chances by the home side - but when sub Darius Henderson gets a goal back with ten minutes remaining, the Royals threaten to deny Swindon the victory - until Jo Kuffour exploits the huge gaps at the back and an indecisive goalkeeper to secure a surprise 3-1 win at the Madejski Stadium.
