Young defender Jake Cooper was the Reading hero as they emerged from a poor run of away form with an excellent 2-1 win at misfiring Norwich.

The 19-year-old opened his account for the Royals with two first-half headers to earn the points from the Sky Bet Championship tussle after Gary Hooper had fired the hosts into an early lead.

It was Reading's first win in seven away matches - while Norwich have now only won once in 10 games and the team managed by Neil Adams were loudly booed off by frustrated fans at the final whistle.


Reading issue hands-off warning to Leeds

Reading have issued a hands-off warning to Leeds over academy boss Eamonn Dolan.

Dolan has been heavily linked with the vacant manager's job at Elland Road to replace ex-Royals chief Brian McDermott, who left the Yorkshire club last month.

But Reading's director of football Nicky Hammond insists the club have no intention of letting Dolan leave his current role, which he has held for almost 10 years.
