Leeds 3-1 Reading
Rob Hulse made a dream debut for Leeds with two spectacular goals as they romped to victory over Reading. Aaron Lennon set up David Healy for the opener shortly before the interval, but it was the on-loan Hulse’s second-half brace that caught the eye. Healy and Jermaine Wright set up his first, from the edge of the area, before Hulse made it two from 25 yards.

Lloyd Owusu’s late goal denied Leeds a clean sheet but that did little to take the shine off Leeds’ and Hulse’s day.


 Leeds assistant manager Sam Ellis:
“We knew Rob was a good player, but that’s better than a dream – you cannot make it up.
“We have no relegation problems now and I hope we can get in among those above us – we’ve given ourselves a good chance of doing that now.

“The play-offs are a hopeful, but realistic possibility.”

  • Reading manager Steve Coppell:
    “Defence is one thing that we’ve had going for us. Since the turn of the year we’ve been very solid,” he said.”But the first goal was a mess-up, and in the second half we had a crazy spell when we conceded two in 10 minutes.”That we’re still up there is scant consolation – on our current form we don’t deserve to be up there.”
