Stewart puts knife in; Reading 0 Huddersfield 2.

HUDDERSFIELD plunged Reading deeper into relegation trouble with two late goals from leading scorer Marcus Stewart and kept alive their bid to climb away from danger.

Reading's 10th defeat in 11 games, and their sixth successive league defeat, sent them to the bottom - a hammer blow for Reading caretaker manager Alan Pardew, in charge for this one match after Terry Bullivant quit.

Huddersfield's first goal followed a Paul Barnes cross which found Stewart and although Nicky Hammond seemed to save, the ball squirmed out of his grasp and rolled gently across the line.

Two minutes from time Stewart again beat Hammond in a race for a loose ball.
