James Wilson netted a first-half winner as Brighton moved up to second place in the Championship following a 1-0 victory over Reading.

Albion, who now boast five successive clean sheets, survived a late rally from the Royals to record their first league win over the Berkshire side in 12 attempts.

The Seagulls have now won five of their last six home games and Reading's defeat still leaves them without a clean sheet away from home for six months.
