Southend United's four game unbeaten run came to end tonight after losing to League Two leaders Burton Albion 2-1.
Southend started the second half with a 1-0 lead and an extra man after Albion midfielder Robbie Weir was sent off just before half time.
But the Shrimpers, who also missed a penalty in the first half, conceded two goals in the second half.
They remain fifth in the table and six points below the automatic promotion places.
Hundreds of fans invaded the pitch as Reading made it through to the semi-finals of the FA Cup, for the first time since 1927.
In what turned out to be a fairly straightforward victory, the Royals beat Bradford City 3-0 in front of a packed out crowd at the Madejski Stadium.
Reading will now take on Arsenal at Wembley on April 18.
