Reading beat Fulham this evening (May 16) to book their place at Wembley in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off final.

Yann Kermorgant’s goal was enough to secure a 1-0 victory at the Madejski Stadium, giving them a 2-1 victory on aggregate and ensuring that they will play in the final, where they will face either Sheffield Wednesday or Huddersfield Town.

Understandably, Reading fans are ecstatic, and are already looking forward to their Wembley date.

Many of them took to Twitter at the final whistle to share their feelings:

Reading’s goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi is taking a lot of plaudits for his performance tonight. His clean sheet helped Reading into the final.

The Royals are on their way to Wembley!

This Reading fan is planning on naming his next child Yann…not sure his wife will be too impressed but it certainly shows some dedication.

I’m sure it was worth all the pain that Reading fans experienced for 90 minutes!

This Reading supporter has definitely got his priorities sorted.

Just a few examples of some of the adjectives used to describe tonight’s victory by Reading fans.

Reading manager Jaap Stam has received a lot of praise throughout the year for his tactical approach at the club, and tonight’s game is no different.

Let it sink in, because you are one game away from the Premier League.

All season long Reading have always been the underdogs, and it is likely that they will be in the final, whoever they play. But one thing is for sure, you can guarantee that it will not phase them.
