After Saturday’s fantastic result against Cardiff, Reading produced another spirited performance against more promotion hopefuls as their good form continues, writes Oliver White.

In a game that at times was end to end, the traveling Royals fans saw their team more than hold their own against Slaven Bilic’s West Brom, who have high aspirations of a Premier League return after stumbling in last year’s play-offs.

However, the Baggies didn’t get the walk in the park that some fans may have expected. It could have been easy to mistake the newly formed Reading back three with a brick wall at times, they were that solid keeping recent recruit West Brom striker Charlie Austin under locks.

The star of the show from the weekend, George Puscas, couldn’t replicate his previous performance with more goals but this enabled the incredibly talented Ovie Ejaria to pick up the mantle.

At a time where the Royals were struggling to get a foothold in the game the on-loan Liverpool man found himself with more time and space than he would usually expect on the edge of the penalty area and unleashed a quite spectacular driven shot into the top corner.

This goal came by no surprise as the 21-year-old had been controlling the Reading midfield, breaking up play and keeping possession looking for Puscas who always offered an out ball stretching the opposition back line.

The change in formation that worked so well against Swansea proved its worth again as the back three of Michael Morrison, Matt Miazga and Liam Moore marshalled their penalty box superbly despite the constant threat of winger Matt Phillips.

As time went on it seemed Reading were on course for a first away win of the season but Royals man of the match, Ejaria, with his only mistake of the game put in a clumsy, tired tackle on Filip Krovinovic and substitute Kenneth Zohore tucked away the spot kick.

Overall it was another fine display from Reading. They weathered strong West Brom storms at times and will feel disappointed they didn’t come away with all three points.

The team is only getting better and better and with Jose Gomes at the helm the future looks bright.
