Reading dump Liverpool out of FA Cup - winning 2-1 at Anfield

An extra-time goal from Shane Long capped a stunning comeback for Championship strugglers Reading as they knocked Liverpool out of the FA Cup.

Liverpool 1-2 Reading

Liverpool fortuitously took the lead when Ryan Bertrand deflected Steven Gerrard's cross into his own net on the stroke of halftime.

Reading pushed for an equaliser throughout the second half and were finally rewarded in injury time when Gylfi Sigurdsson levelled from the penalty spot after a foul on substitute Shane Long.

Long's extra-time header 10 minutes into extra-time proved the decisive blow to send Reading through.
