There was a display of vintage Sean Kerly in the first half of Canterbury's game at Reading. The old campaigner set up Canterbury's first two goals for Paul Wicken and Stuart Humphries as the visitors took a two-goal lead.
Reading clawed their way back, taking advantage of the temporary suspension of Canterbury's captain, David Hacker, to equalise. A brilliant solo goal by the player most likely to take over Kerly's mantle - Mark Pearn - put Reading ahead for the first time in the game. Pearn got a second and Scott Ashdown collected his brace as Reading took control in the last quarter of the game.
