Bristol City beat Reading 1-0 after a late goal from transfer-listed winger Albert Adomah.
Adomah produced an excellent finish following a good team move and his solitary strike proved the difference on the night.
The Royals should have at least drawn the game, with Chris Gunter and Nick Blackman spurning close-range chances in the closing stages.
Blackman - one of seven second-half changes - saw a header cleared off the line and could not keep the rebound down. Gunter then smacked well over from the edge of the six-yard box right on full time.
