Reading 0-0 Birmingham City

Ali Al-Habsi


Ali Al-Habsi has conceded only one goal in Reading’s last three matches

Reading stretched their unbeaten run to five games in all competitions after being held by high-flying Birmingham.

Reading’s Ali Al-Habsi made an early save after Lukas Jutkiewicz had got on the end of David Cotterill’s free-kick.

Michael Morrison went close for Birmingham before Jutkiewicz was again thwarted by Al-Habsi in the first half.

Diego Fabbrini fired just wide for Birmingham in the 90th minute before team-mate David Davis missed the target in the second minute of stoppage-time.

The result means Birmingham drop a place to fifth in the Championship table, while Reading go up one spot to 10th.
