Robbie Findley played 88 minutes in Nottingham Forest's big win over Reading in midweek action in England.

Nottingham Forest 1-0 Reading

Robbie Findley was in Nottingham Forest's starting eleven as they beat Reading in midweek Championship action.

Findley started and played 88 minutes before he was subbed out for Brendan Moloney. Prior to the game, Ishmael Miller was deemed unfit to play due to hernia complications, opening a spot for the American striker.

Forest almost scored in the 11th minute when Marcus Tudgay knocked home a Radoslaw Majewski cross, but the forward was called offside according to the linesman.

Reading almost got on the board just minutes later when Jobi McAnuff's effort hit the post, almost giving the Royals the lead.

In the second half, Forest's Lews McGugan nearly scored off of a free kick that Reading ‘keeper Adam Federici fumbled in front of the goal. The Royals' goalie managed to snag the ball from the pouncing Forest players.

The 75th minute saw Forest get the lead after Tudgay scored on a ten-yard shot after Luke Chambers crossed him the ball.

In a last ditch effort, Noel Hunt nearly scored for the Royals, but his effort was superbly saved by Forest goalie Lee Camp in stoppage time.

Forest next take on Porstmouth on Saturday, while Reading host Jonathan Spector and Birmingham City on Sunday.

Notes

Conor Doyle did not feature in Derby County's loss to Cardiff City.
