Result: Burnley 0-1 Reading

Jem Karacan scores the only goal of the game to send Reading three points clear of Burnley.

Jem Karacan scored the only goal of the game as Reading beat Burnley at Turf Moor this afternoon.

Reading striker Adam le Fondre provided keeper Lee Grant with his one test of the first half, close to the half-hour mark, which was saved.

Ross Wallace came close twice for the home side, but was unable to break the deadlock against Adam Federici.

Referee Phil Gibbs awarded nine minutes of added time at the end of the second half, after utility man Jay Tabb needed lengthy treatment for a head injury.

The Clarets were on the verge of extending their unbeaten run to five games with their second clean sheet in a row, before Tabb's replacement Karacan stabbed the ball home after 98 minutes.

Reading now sit two spots ahead of their opponents in the Championship, with three points between them.
