English nPower Championship Playoff Final 2011: Scott Sinclair Scores Twice In 1 Minute; 2-0 Swansea

Wow. No less than a minute after having a penalty appeal of their own turned down, Reading find themselves conceding a spot kick after Nathan Dyer burst into the area only to be felled by a silly challenge from the already-booked Zurab Khizanishvili. Phil Dowd points to the spot, but doesn't send off the Georgian. That won't cheer up Reading fans too much, as Scott Sinclair coolly slots the penalty home, sending Adam Federici the wrong way.

Oh, and things get worse for Reading, as Swansea grab another goal straight from the restart, robbing their opponents and marching upfield, splitting the Reading defence down the right. A low cross courtesy of Stephen Dobbie is hammered across the six-yard box and Federici can only parry it (very weakly) straight into Sinclair's path at the far post. With an open goal two yards away, it would be impossible to miss, and Sinclair gleefully claimed his second goal in less than forty seconds, making it 2-0 Swansea. Nightmare for Reading.
