Former Everton striker Ayegbeni Yakubu showed his finishing prowess as Reading progressed to the last eight of the FA Cup at the expense of a Derby County side reduced to 10 men for 50 minutes.

Hal Robson-Kanu's goal was cancelled out by Darren Bent but Yakubu, signed as a free agent during the January transfer window, netted the winner.
