Pav helps Royals down Palace
Palace started well at the Madejski, with Aaron Martin heading
over from six yards out before Adam Le Fondre wasted a decent
chance for the Royals.
Pogrebnyak missed the target and Danny Guthrie had a goalbound
shot blocked right before half-time whistle blew.
Pogrebnyak (52) grabbed his first goal in the blue and white
hoops when his shot was deflected past the Palace keeper to open
The Royals were then two up when Hal Robson-Kanu’s low cross
found Le Fondre (54) and he made no mistake from close range.
Simon Church’s header was well saved by Julian Speroni and
Palace should have had an 89th minute consolation but substitute
Jermaine Easter pulled his shot wide.
