Reading picked up an important three points on Tuesday evening, as they beat Blackburn Rovers 1-0 at the Madejski Stadium.
George Puscas scored the only goal of the match, as he finished clinically past Thomas Kaminski in the Blackburn goal, after Omar Richards had dispossessed Liverpool loanee Harvey Elliott on the edge of his own penalty area.
The Romanian international has spent a large part of this year’s campaign out injured, but will be delighted to mark his return to the starting XI with a goal to his name.
Reading are now sat fifth in the Championship table, and will be looking to cement their place in the top-six at the earliest of opportunities, with plenty of teams still in with a chance of finishing in the play-off positions this term.

One of the best performances I’ve seen from Puscas in a reading shirt . He seems rejuvenated and suits two up top soooo much better than his old lone striker role. #readingfc

Puscas is the man of the match tonight, no question. He's put in a real shift for us, he could be crucial over the next few weeks. #readingfc
