Flackwell Heath lost for the first time at home this season in the league as they were defeated 3-1 by Reading City.

The Berkshire side took the lead after 14 minutes through a Jack Thomson-Wheeler finish before they doubled their advantage three minutes later through an Eddie Lee header.

The Heathens pulled one back before the break through a well-taken Charlie Malin strike, but the game was sealed when Dan Warre went around Jamie Brooker in the Flackwell goal to tap in with nine minutes remaining.

It was a bitter pill for Flackwell to swallow, as they tasted defeat for only the second time in the league this season but stay in third.

For Reading, it was the third triumph on the road as they sit just above the relegation zone.
