Swift stepped up a good 25-yards-out and gave it a right good smack and before he knew it the ball was in the back of the Coventry net.

The goal was Reading’s third and final goal of the game which came in the 72nd minute after Lucas Joao gave Reading the lead in the 16th minute before Andy Rinomhota doubled their lead 30 mintes later in the 46th minute with Swift wrapping up the scoring 18 minutes before full-time.

The win sees Reading climb into fourth in the Championship just behind Watford who are also on 43 points but slightly ahead on goal difference.
