A quick, lively and strong player, Shane chipped in throughout Reading's record-breaking title win that year, and scored twice in the 5-0 home victory over Derby County that sealed the title for Steve Coppell's men. Since then he has impressed in the Premier League, established himself on the international scene, scored two FA Cup quarter -final goals against Aston Villa and, in 2010-11, he led the scoring with 25 League goals for the Royals.
