Burnley dictated the law against Reading before half time, but the glasses score was still on the scoreboard at half time. Against the course of the game, it was Reading who opened the scoring thanks to Tom Ince in the 56th minute.
On the hour, Kompany Benson threw Manuel into the fray and just like in his previous two substitutions, our compatriot again made the difference. With a volley from close range, he equalized 6 minutes after his substitute: 1-1.
Burnley went looking for the winning goal and found it in extra time. Benson dribbled his way into the penalty area and found Anass Zaroury at the far post. The ex-Charleroi player headed the 2-1 final score on the board in minute 94.
Burnley is on a strong streak in the Championship, the English second division. It has been unbeaten for 15 games and now recorded its third win in a row. It is 2 points ahead of Blackburn Rovers in the standings.
