After a run of four straight defeats, and going a goal down inside three minutes from a defensive error, earning three points at St Andrew’s did not look very likely. 

However, Reading managed to fight back against The Blues, securing all three points with two second half goals. 

18-year-old Jahmari Clarke netted both Reading goals to change the complex of the contest in the Midlands, in what was the young forward’s first two goals in professional football.

Despite Clarke stealing the headlines for his impact when he came on as a second half substitute, Reading right-back Andy Yiadom also put in a starring performance. 

The 29-year-old’s ability to support the play, create from the right flank, and provide an excellent defensive service, played a big part in Reading turning the game around. 

The full-back who entered the professional game through the non-league route has been an integral part of Reading’s defence since signing in 2018, making his 100th appearance with the Berkshire club earlier on in the campaign.

Yiadom has missed just one game for The Royals this season through quarantine restrictions but has played every other minute, captaining the side on a couple of occasions too.
