Reading beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 in the Championship yesterday.
Goals from Yakou Meite, George Puscas and Sam Baldock gave Reading their first win since New Year’s Day.
A cutting through ball from Ovie Ejaria presented Meite with his 6th goal of the season in the first-half, and Puscas flicked home a second Reading goal in the second, his eighth of the season.
Baldock then sealed the win from the penalty spot in injury time, and made for a happy road back to Berkshire for the travelling supporters.
The performance got a lot of praise from fans who’ve witnessed some poor ones since the turn of the year, and Meite received a lot of individual praise too.

He became the first Reading player since Adam Le Fondre in 2012/13 to reach double figures for goals in all competitions in consecutive seasons, and now has four in his last seven.
Plenty of Reading fans took to Twitter after the game to sing their praises for the Ivorian, and here’s what they had to say:

Looks like he loves the club as much as we love him

Can't forget Yakou Meite though, who just keeps scoring goals.
Played as a right winger today, but drifted infield to great effect, as with the goal. Really intelligent movement and a top finish. https://t.co/K1GkdYGH8F
