  1. Good evening

    Leeds 3-2 Reading

    Chris Wood

    Eleven goals for Chris Wood so far this season, and he's helped Leeds up to 12th in the Championship.

    Steve Evans told BBC Radio Leeds he's hoping to sit down with the President soon to discuss his future at the club.

    You can listen to our post-match interview with Evans here.

    We'll be back on Tuesday for the clash with Wolves. Until then, thank you very much for joining us, and enjoy the rest of your evening!

  2. More from Evans

    Leeds 3-2 Reading

    "We've said to Luke Murphy that he won't get into the team just passing - he has to be courageous and make tackles," Evans said.

    "In the last month you've seen him be as good as anyone in both departments. He's a real stalwart of the team and we were able to get fresh legs on around him.

    "The goal was basic defending and we pointed it out at half-time and we got through to the players. My message to them was how do we get ourselves back into this football match?

    "I said at 2-2 I can't fault what my players are doing here, and it's a great sign for any Leeds United footballer when Chris Wood puts you in front and gets you three points."

  4. More from Noel

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    Leeds did deserve this victory overall and they battled their way to a win.

    They’ve shown they can bounce back and that’s a side I’ve been wanting to see.

    You have to get results whatever it takes and have that strength of character. We’ve seen that today – Leeds have made their moments count.  

  5. Steve Evans on today's win

    Leeds 3-2 Reading

    Steve Evans

    "The players deserve enormous credit, especially with a lot of 24-hour viruses going around the camp," Steve Evans told BBC Radio Leeds.

    "I was quite hard with them at half time, then we got people further up the pitch near Chris and that worked for us.

    "We feel particularly robbed about the equaliser but that's when you find out if you have character. We've been vocal today to get more drive and energy out of them and the young kids we brought on gave them some freshness."

  6. Noel on Chris Wood

    Leeds 3-2 Reading

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    I believed in Chris Wood and when he gets the right service, he gets goals.

    You don't see three goals at Elland Road very often from Leeds and it's been an entertaining game.

    Strikers work on confidence and although his overall game is good, he's not judged on that. 

    He's judged on goals and I'm happy his hard work has paid off. He looks sharper and hungrier and that is the key.

  7. Leeds safe in Championship

    Leeds 3-2 Reading

  8. Popey on the victory

    Leeds 3-2 Reading

    Adam Pope

    BBC West Yorkshire Sport

    It was, in the end, entertaining.

    It did go flat in the first half but Chris Wood, for me, had a great game and was unlucky not to get a hat-trick.

    We thought it might be a dull game at certain times at the first half and I think Leeds will look back happy with the win but disappointed with the way Reading scored their goals.

  10. Noel on today's win

    Leeds 3-2 Reading

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    We needed to follow up the good displays at Burnley and Birmingham with a victory here.

    It wasn't perfect but it’s a win at Elland Road, which is something we needed more of.

  11. FULL TIME: LEEDS 3-2 READING

    Chris Wood

    Thanks to a Chris Wood brace, Leeds have won their first game at Elland Road since 5th March.

    Leeds only have themselves to blame for the two goals they conceded but they've got three points, Chris Wood has two goals and they're making a decent end to the season. Let us know your thoughts, Leeds fans, by tweeting us @wysdaily

  12. Leeds 3-2 Reading

    Chris Wood has a chance to make it a hat-trick as Lewis Cook breaks and tees him up, but he blazes it over the bar.

  13. Leeds 3-2 Reading

    Leeds make their final change, as Lewie Coyle comes on for Stuart Dallas.

  14. Leeds 3-2 Reading

    Reading win a free-kick on the corner of United's box, and Leeds head it away. Five minutes of extra time ahead...

  15. Leeds 3-2 Reading

    As it stands, Leeds are 12th in the Championship. They really have to make sure they don't switch off now, as Liam Cooper gets a yellow for a blatant trip on Garath McCleary.

  16. Leeds 3-2 Reading

    Chris Wood was so quick to react to that Reading slip in the build-up to the goal. He was around the defender and sliding the ball under the keeper before Reading really had time to react.

  17. BreakingGOAL WOOD: LEEDS 3-2 READING

    That's two for Chris Wood and from some superb play down the left.

    Reading get into a real mess at the back and a slip allows Wood to get in and slip the ball under Ali Al Habsi. Be an interesting last five minutes!

  18. Leeds 2-2 Reading

    The linesman had the flag raised in the build-up to the equaliser, but play continued, Reading scored and now Leeds are on the back foot.

  19. BreakingGOAL RAKELS: LEEDS 2-2 READING

    Ah. That's not gone well for Leeds - in fact, it is dire defending again that's cost Leeds a goal.

    Simon Cox hits the bar, it comes back out and Deniss Rakels manages to slice the rebound in from close range. Leeds are furious as they had a decision go against them in the build up, but they still completely switched off.

  20. Leeds 2-1 Reading

    Leeds make their second change, as Mirco Antenucci makes way for Lee Erwin.
