Ovie Ejaria gave the hosts a well-deserved head start, cutting inward and unleashing a low shot from the edge of the box that required a major diversion from Zak Vyner and beating City Keeper Daniel Bentley.
Nahki Wells equalized with City’s second attempt at goal, lunging for a loose ball from a free kick and tucking the ball under Rafael Cabral.
But their parity was short-lived as Michael Olise’s superbly weighted pass sent Yakou Meite into Bentley before Lucas Joao sealed the points from close range after another quick counterattack.
The Royals had full value for the points, which lifted them to third place, and would have won by a larger margin without a series of top saves from Bentley.
They showed almost all of their attacking intent in a cagey first half, with Bentley brilliantly averting Meite’s shot at the vertebra and then overturning a stabbing long-range shot from Joao.
Bentley re-challenged Meite just before City’s run ended with three goals against, then clawed Tom Holmes’ powerful header off the top corner to prevent the hosts from doubling their lead.
Meite cleared but saw his efforts were saved before Michael Morrison stepped in when he was picked out unmarked four meters from the target as Reading continued to dominate 1-0. It looked like a decisive miss when Wells equalized despite strong offside claims.
But Meite and Joao have beaten City for the first time in five games, and Meite also headed with a gaping goal after a deflected attempt hit the crossbar.
Royals boss Veljko Paunovic was not only impressively impressive, but also limited the Robins threat after conceding 16 goals in the last six games.
