Highlights: Reading 0-3 West Ham United

 

West Ham United scored three past Championship side Reading at the Select Car Leasing Stadium to earn their second pre-season victory in a row.

David Moyes' Irons were on top from the very opening moments of the game and would have enjoyed a greater lead than 1-0 at half-time, were it not for inspired goalkeeping from Reading's Rafael between the posts.

A fortuitous own-goal by Jeriel Dorsett eventually granted the Hammers the lead, and with West Ham manager David Moyes able to introduce a full raft of substitutes in a slower-paced second half, Academy of Football graduate Ben Johnson set up Conor Coventry for a tap-in before adding a third himself with a superb slaloming run in the closing stages.
