Reading 1-2 Aston Villa

Feb 25, 2008

Aston Villa kept up their challenge for fourth place in the Premier League with a win at relegation-placed Reading.

Villa’s Gareth Barry missed a dubiously-awarded penalty before the visitors went ahead when Ashley Young slotted home after a counter-attack.

Nicky Shorey had a shot parried as the Royals fought back, but Marlon Harewood curled in a shot to secure Villa’s win.

Reading efforts did receive their reward in injury-time when Shorey scored with a 25-yard free-kick.
