Michail Antonio's header gives Nottingham Forest a half-time lead against Reading in the Championship.

Michail Antonio's third goal of the season has given Nottingham Forest a 1-0 lead at half time against Reading in the Championship.

Forest had a half chance shortly before the goal, but Andy Reid was unable to react fast enough when the ball bounced to him inside the box as Adam Federici jumped on the ball.

Moments later, Forest had their goal and it was Chris Burke who was the architect as he planted a great cross onto the head of summer signing Antonio to nod home.

The visitors responded well and saw plenty of possession, but it was the home side who again went close when Danny Fox forced Federici into a good stop.
