Reading end Everton's 100 per cent start to the season with a 1-0 win at the Madejski Stadium.

Everton were knocked off the top of the Premier League table on goal difference as they lost for the first time this season to hard-working Reading.

Stephen Hunt fired the first-half winner when he lashed the ball past Tim Howard just before the interval.

Everton looked more dangerous after the break with Andrew Johnson going close.

But the Royals' extra work-rate paid dividends as they survived a late surge by the visitors to seal their first victory of the season.
