Reed tastes Wembley glory | Southampton FC

    On-loan Southampton midfielder Harrison Reed was a Wembley winner last night, as Fulham defeated west London rivals Brentford in the Championship play-off final.

    A typically tense encounter went into extra time after a goalless 90 minutes, with nothing to separate two sides who finished level on points in the regular season.

    But left-back Joe Bryan was the unlikely hero as Fulham won “the richest game in football” for the second time in three seasons.

    The former Bristol City defender scored a stunning long-range free-kick to break the deadlock, before sealing victory three minutes from time.

    Henrik Dalsgaard pulled a goal back for Brentford with only seconds remaining, but the Bees were nullified by a well-drilled Fulham side and could not find their usual sting.

    Reed completed the full 120 minutes with characteristic tenacity at the heart of the engine room, whilst impressing with his usual calmness in possession as the starting point for many Fulham attacks.

    The 25-year-old midfielder made a total of 27 appearances over the course of the season, playing a starring role since the lockdown.

    Fulham finished the regular season seven matches unbeaten, before overcoming Cardiff over two legs in the play-off semi-final to set up last night’s local showdown.
