READING slipped into the bottom three of the Championship after their latest defeat a 1-0 reverse at Bristol City.

Famara Diedhiou scored the only goal as the home side stretched their unbeaten run in the league to 10 games

Diedhiou scored with a diving header from Niclas Eliasson’s cross.

However, the Robins had to withstand long periods of good Royals pressure after half-time, with George Puscas wasting a great chance when he failed to control Ovie Ejaria's ball into the six-yard box.

Before that, Yakou Meite was denied by Daniel Bentley and the home goalkeeper also made a great save to turn Lucas Boye's late shot around the post.

Reading’s next game is on October 19 at home to Preston
