Reading made light work of Sunderland on Saturday, taking the lead through Josh Barrett minutes into the game. Gabriel Osho then doubled Reading’s advantage midway into the first-half.
After the break, Ben House made it three before Sunderland pulled a goal back through Luke Molyneux. Osho scored his second and Reading’s fourth in injury time.
