Match Commentary

90' ...but the final whistle goes before he can get too far. United were off their game, Reading well-organised and stubborn, but Rooney's deflected goal means the home side have a colossal 15-point advantage at the top of the table.
90' Morrison crosses and United have to scramble to get that one away. Giggs can lead the break...
90' Le Fondre for Reading, then Blackman. Giggs gets in and United can break with Rooney... but Kagawa loses possession.
