Reading beat Manchester City 1-0 to earn their second Premiership victory of the season on Monday (Sep 11th).

Ivar Ingimarsson scored the winner in the 23rd minute when he latched on to Bobby Convey's first-half free-kick to nod the ball into the corner of the net.

City dominated for long spells but were not clinical enough, Paul Dickov firing at Marcus Hahnemann and Georgios Samaras seeinga shot deflected wide.

Ousmane Dabo was sent off late on for using his elbow as Reading held on.

They deserved the three points for efforts and commitment, but in truth City will be astonished to leave with nothing to show for their efforts.

They started brightly and had immediate joy down the right, with Trevor Sinclair and Micah Richards pouring forward at every opportunity.

One lovely passing move sent Richards to the byline, but Dickovcould only strike the teenager's fine pull-back straight at Hahnemann from 10 yards.

    Joey Barton was having a big influence on the game, spraying passes all around the pitch and going on one mazy run that ended with a cross Bernardo Corradi should have tucked away.

When a goal did come, it was against the run of play -- to the delight of the home faithful.

Leroy Lita was fouled by Sylvain Distin and when the free-kick was swung in, Ingimarsson bravely stooped in a crowded box to head past Nicky Weaver into the far corner of the net.

As City dominated possession it was Reading who again fashioned the chances, Ingimarsson once more ghosting into the box to see a fierce left-foot shot tipped over by Weaver.

City were having trouble marking at set-pieces and Seol Ki-Hyeon was the next to take advantage, the unmarked South Korean powering a header over from Convey's corner.

Stuart Pearce, manager of City, was his usual frenetic self on the touchline and he had every right to be frustrated as City were continually let down by their inability to create clear-cut chances.
