The visitors were reduced to ten men in the first-half at Oakwell after Jimmy Kebe's sending off but kept their cool to win the game thanks to Brynjar Gunnarsson's goal.

"We've been fortunate," said manager Steve Coppell afterwards.

"We went down to 10 men in our last away game and we can't keep doing that.

"With the sending-off, the centre-half tried to claim some ground and my player responded by pushing him away so it was a nothing situation. That's no defence because you can't raise your hands but we know what we think and we'll keep our thoughts to ourselves."

Opposite number Simon Davey was in gloomy mood after the game.

"It's very disappointing," he said.

"We couldn't break them down but credit to Reading because we gave them a chance to score and they took it.

"We now have to go to two difficult places in Swansea and Wolves and try and pick up points."
