Reading 1 Brighton & Hove Albion 2
Albion continued their pre-season preparations with a win at Reading.
The Seagulls, wearing their new away kit, dominated the early exchanges with slick and accurate passing.
Pascal Gross headed home the opener with almost 20 minutes played.
Albion continued to dominate a frustrated Reading with Junior Hoylett diving for some tackles not becoming a friendly match.
Reading looked seriously outclassed and must be concerned as the EFL season starts next Saturday (30 July).
Solly March doubled Albion’s lead two minutes into the restart with a great effort from the edge of the box.
Then on the hour mark Alexis Mac Allister pushed over Tom Ince and Yakou Meite slotted home the resulting penalty.
Kaoru Mitoma and Deniz Undav both had late run-outs for Albion.
