Yakou Meite netted Reading’s fastest competitive goal, undefeated, to extend his championship lead to seven points with an impressive 4-2 win at Blackburn

The Ivorian took the chance to score after just eight seconds – his third in two games – before a fit Adam Armstrong led home a handsome equalizer two minutes later

Blackburn’s powerful attack on Reading’s medium defense before the game was important, but Veljko Paunovic’s men highlighted their own dangerous front line with a blistering start that saw them score two more before the 19th minute thanks to the Royals’ first goal from Michael Olise and Josh Laurent

Tony Mowbray’s side had some hope in the 66th minute thanks to Armstrong’s thrown header, but the visitors had the last laugh thanks to former Rover Lucas Joao, who capped a fine individual performance with a compound finish at eight minutes

It’s now seven wins in eight league games for Reading, who won back-to-back defeats to Ewood Park for Blackburn for the first time since March 2019

Aynsley Pears made his debut in place of injured Thomas Kaminski for Blackburn, while Joao was drafted for Reading

The Royals were ahead early when a long ball hit Barry Douglas’ heels and landed invitingly on Joao who defended Meite and he had the simplest task of hitting an empty net

Blackburn hit back two minutes later with Armstrong’s lavish half-volley to convert Harvey Elliott’s cross and break Reading’s defense for just the second time this season

But Reading underscored his ambitions with two goals in the space of a ruthless four minutes They regained the lead in the 15th minute, and it was too easy for Olise, who easily slipped past Derrick Williams before sneaking past clinically in the lower right corner

They made three in the 18th minute when Omar Richards passed Joe Rankin-Costello His cross was only cleared as Laurent who had time to bend beautifully past Pears’ dive and 20 meters off the pole

Rafael Cabral made a clean save just before the break to deny Armstrong a second, thwarting his header at close range, and just after half-time, Douglas sent a search facility that just escaped the talisman of Blackburn

He picked up his awards midway through halftime with a shining header and a look to guide the Rankin-Costello curling center to score his 10th goal of a prolific season and give the hosts hope for rescue work

Cabral made an mid-flight stop to turn down Lewis Holtby, but Joao extinguished any hopes of a late return with a compound run and finish, looping beyond Pears’ reach to extend the dream start. by Reading
