Reading 0-2 Burnley (agg 0-3)

Spectacular strikes from Martin Paterson and Steven Thompson ensured Burnley defeated Reading to book a Championship play-off final tie against Sheffield United.
Leading 1-0 from the first leg, Burnley limited their opponents to precious few openings before two goals in seven decisive second-half minutes sealed victory for Owen Coyle's team. 
Marcus Hahnemann was powerless to stop Paterson's vicious 25-yard left-footed strike after 51 minutes. 
And the Reading keeper was equally helpless as Thompson's looping, opportunist strike from the left-hand corner of the penalty area went in off the crossbar minutes later. 
Burnley's 3-0 aggregate victory means that they are now one match away from a return to the top flight of English football after a 33-year absence.
The final will be the Clarets' 61st match of a long and adventurous season that saw them come within minutes of Wembley in the Carling Cup. 
Reading are left to reflect on a campaign that at one point suggested an immediate return to the Premier League but floundered on a dramatic loss of form at home over the closing months of the season.
