Craig Conway fires Blackburn Rovers ahead in their Championship meeting with at Reading.
A debut goal from Craig Conway separates Reading and Blackburn Rovers at half time in their Championship clash.
The hosts were quicker off the starting blocks, with Jobi McAnuff testing visiting goalkeeper Paul Robinson early on following good work by Pavel Pogrebnyak.
Nigel Adkins's side had a glorious opportunity to take the lead with less than 20 minutes on the clock when Hope Akpan combined with McAnuff before driving an effort into the side-netting.
Reading continued to dominate play, but fell behind in the 36th minute when Conway capitalised on poor defending from the hosts and guided the ball beyond Alex McCarthy.
Jordan Rhodes came close to doubling Blackburn's advantage ahead of half time, but the Scot's header was well saved by McCarthy.
