Everything looked rosy when the Royals took the lead after just 11 minutes, striker Simon Church tucking away Jimmy Kebe's cross from the byline.

But they failed to make their possession count and were pegged back when goalkeeper Ben Hamer brought down Jean-Paul Marna in the area just after the hour mark.

Marna swept home the equaliser from the penalty spot, and he grabbed the winner a minute from time when he was first to a loose ball in the penalty area.
