Half-Time Report: Chris Martin, Jordan Ibe give Derby County the lead

Derby County have a 2-0 lead going into half time of their Championship clash with Reading thanks to goals from Chris Martin and Jordan Ibe.

Goals from Chris Martin and Jordan Ibe have given Derby County a 2-0 lead going into half time of their Championship clash with Reading this afternoon.

Simon Cox was given the game's first chance, but the Reading frontman could only head over from Hal Robson-Kanu's cross.

Royals captain Chris Gunter then had to be alert to make an acrobatic headed clearance from Jamie Ward's ball into the box.

Derby opened the scoring from the resulting corner, however, after Martin headed home through the legs of Jordan Obita for his eighth goal of the season.

The hosts came close to an equaliser after Jake Taylor's shot was palmed out by Lee Grant straight to Robson-Kanu, but the midfielder couldn't adjust his feet in time and the chance went begging.

Glenn Murray flicked against the crossbar for the Royals but Ibe eventually extended Derby's advantage after firing into the top corner.
