Sunderland 2 Reading 1 - Saturday 15th September 2007

Reading's last visit to the Stadium of Light was a poignant one as Wearside paid tribute to Ian Porterfield.

The 1973 FA Cup-winning hero had passed away the previous week and Sunderland was in mourning as the Royals travelled to the Stadium of Light.

Tributes poured in following Porterfield's passing, with members of the Cup-winning team presented on the pitch before the game.

The Black Cats responded once the whistle blew, winning 2-1 thanks to goals from Kenwyne Jones and Ross Wallace.
