Yakubu opens account at Reading….


Yakubu Aiyegbeni came off the bench to score his first goal for Reading and secure an FA Cup fifth-round 2 – 1 victory at Derby. Hal Robson-Kanu gave the visitors a 53rd-minute lead after Stephen Warnock had been sent off on his Derby debut for fouling Jamie Mackie. Darren Bent’s fifth goal in as many games levelled the scores in the all-Championship tie eight minutes later. With a replay beckoning, January signing Yakubu fired in a low left-footed shot. Rams boss Steve McClaren made seven changes to the side that drew 2-2 with Bournemouth in the league in midweek.
