Reading have now won back-to-back games in the Championship

Reading extended their unbeaten home run in the Championship to eight matches as they came from behind to beat struggling Nottingham Forest.

Ben Osborn put Forest ahead against the run of play, beating Ali Al-Habsi after being put through by Henri Lansbury.

The hosts dominated in the second half and, seven minutes after coming on, substitute Matej Vydra deflected home Oliver Norwood’s long-range effort.

Reading secured victory thanks to a fierce 20-yard strike from Norwood.

Brian McDermott speaks to BBC Radio Berkshire after Reading’s 2-1 victory against Nottingham Forest.

Despite claiming a first league win in four league games against Forest, the Royals remain 13th in the table.

Forest have lost eight of their past 10 games, and taken only one point from four matches since Paul Williams replaced Dougie Freedman as manager.

Beaten 3-0 by Brentford on Saturday, they are 17th in the table, nine points above the relegation zone with six games remaining.
