Birmingham City could not keep up the momentum of the last couple of games and they went down 2-0 at Reading on Saturday.

It was probably too much to expect another performance like the last two games from City, especially against a Reading side that look to have got their act together.

And it was the home side who were dominant right from the start and for much of the game Blues simply could not live with it.

Reading could have gone ahead when Pavel Pogrebnyak went through but Darren Randolph was on form to thwart the danger.

And after soaking up much of the pressure, Birmingham conceded in the 32nd minute after the home side won a free kick for handball by Burke. Guthrie took the kick from the left and the ball evaded everyone on a crowded area and went into the far corner of the net.

So all that was left to do was the home side seal the win and that finally came in the 75th minute when Dan Burn gave away a free kick on the edge of the box when he fouled Robson-Kanu and Guthrie curled the ball home from the free kick for his and Reading’s second.

Reading: McCarthy – Gunter, Morrison (c), Pearce, Bridge McCleary (Obita 80), Baird, Guthrie, Robson-Kanu (Kelly 85) – Pogrebnyak, Le Fondre (Akpan 79).

Subs not used: Federici, Cummings, Gorkss, Sharp.

Blues: Randolph – Spector, Burn, Robinson (c), Murphy (Ferguson 76) – Caddis, Burke, Reilly, Adeyemi (Elliott 71), Lingard – Green (Zigic 64).

Subs not used: Doyle, Bartley, Lee, Shinnie. Booked: Spector 64, Zigic 90.

Referee: J.Adcock.
