Eagles reach semis!

Crystal Palace beat Reading 2-0 to earn a place in the FA Cup semi-final.

The Eagles enter the last four of the cup for the first time in 21 years by beating the Championship outfit with two late goals.

Reading keeper Ali Al-Habsi had frustrated Palace with a string of fine saves to keep out the Premier League club. He pushed away Mile Jedinak's powerful header and later two Yohan Cabaye free-kicks.

Emmanuel Adebayor and Yannick Bolasie wasted good opportunities to score before Palace got the breakthrough in the 84th minute.

Royals defender Jake Cooper was red carded for pulling back Bolasie in the box as he went for a ball over the top of the defence and Cabaye scored the resulting penalty.

Then in stoppage time, substitute Fraizer Campbell added a second from Adebayor's assist to round off a convincing victory for Alan Pardew's side.
