At Reading, Bristol City held their nerve to secure a 3-2 win to finish fifth in victory.

Nigel Pearson’s men, Andreas Weimann and Chris Martin put the club on a 2-0 ahead after 14 minutes at the Madejski Stadium. It was short-lived as Femi Azeez was quick to reduce the arrears, Weimann wasted no time in the second half to grab his second goal, but Liam Moore countered as Reading pushed for a leveler to no avail.

The only home side to triumph on Tuesday was Huddersfield, following Sepp van den Berg’s own goal as it was enough to kick off Preston 1-0. While Aden Flint was Cardiff’s hero; Peterborough was denied victory at the death.
