Royals edge seven-goal thriller

Nottingham Forest's play-off hopes were dealt another blow after an injury-time own goal from Luke Chambers gave top-six rivals Reading a 4-3 victory in an enthralling game at the City Ground.It had looked like Lewis McGugan's 88th-minute penalty would salvage a draw for Forest but Chambers deflected Jem Karacan's cross past Lee Camp, who then went on to save a spot-kick from Shane Long.Ian Harte put Reading ahead but a Kris Boyd penalty and a goal from Robert Earnshaw turned the game on its head.Karacan and Jimmy Kebe restored the Royals' lead before McGugan levelled from the penalty spot, shortly before Chambers' unfortunate intervention.
