Fulham Under-18s were beaten 3-2 away at Reading on Saturday.
Mikolaj Kwietniewski put the Whites in front with just 12 minutes played with a low shot from the edge of the box, although the home goalkeeper will feel he could have done better.
Steve Wigley’s troops just about edged the first half and deserved their lead at the break, but a blitz from the Royals soon after the restart left them shell-shocked as three goals in quick succession turned the game on its head.
Isaac Pearce reduced the deficit with five minutes remaining, but an equaliser proved elusive.
