Sterling effort sinks Royals

20 October 2012 05:17

Forward Raheem Sterling scored his first Liverpool goal to give manager Brendan Rodgers his maiden home league win thanks to a 1-0 victory against former club Reading.

The England Under-21 international, at 17 years and 317 days old, as a result became the club's second-youngest Premier League goalscorer behind Michael Owen.

His strike should not have been the Reds' sole effort but such are their problems up front this season - prior to kick-off only Sunderland (two) and bottom club QPR (one) had scored fewer at home - win-less Reading remained in the game right up until the final whistle.
