Match Commentary

94' FULL TIME - a superb first half, one of the finest I've ever seen, but a dismal second, as is often the case. Man Utd comfortable in the second period and they go three clear of Man City. Reading remain second bottom.
93' Morrison wins the second corner but can't get on top of the ball, sending his header flying over the bar.
92' Shorey's corner finds its way to Morrison, who nods it down and forces Lindegaard to tip over the bar.
