The result means Reading are seven points clear at the top of Group H with two matches remaining, while Stoke City and Sheffield United, who are nine adrift, play each other twice in their four remaining fixtures.

Stoke and Sheff Utd are the only sides who can catch Reading, with Birmingham seven points adrift after playing four of the six Group H matches.
