Beeston dent Reading play-off hopes

Reading's hopes of making the Premier League play-offs at the end of the season were badly dented at Beeston yesterday, writes Brian Tatlock. In one of only two rearranged National League games, Reading were beaten 1-0 by a Paul Sheardown's 52nd-minute goal. In Division One, Doncaster, with hat-tricks from Mark Wood and Gary Ferguson in a 9-1 victory against St Albans, moved top on goal difference. In a rearranged fourth-round Cup game, Sheffield were beaten 4-2 by East Grinstead.
