The victory was the first time Reading had won their opening game of the season since 2006.

Former Reading man Jay Tabb gave Ipswich a 16th-minute lead but a Cole Skuse own goal put Reading level a minute before half- time.

With 16 minutes to go Danny Guthrie scored the winner with a spectacular solo goal.

Guthrie was all on his own midway into the Ipswich half and beat Ipswich's Scott Loach with a fierce effort which went over the keeper's head.

The opening goal had come from former Reading player Tabb, now an Ipswich player after spending the end of last season on loan with Mick McCarthy's side.

His 16th-minute shot was well saved by Alex McCarthy but as Reading scrambled to clear the ball it ran back to Tabb and he made no mistake with a low drive into the net.
