Last-gasp Barry earns City victory against Reading

Gareth Barry scored three minutes into added time to hand Manchester City FC a 1-0 win against Reading FC, while Arsenal FC beat Wigan Athletic FC by the same scoreline to go third.

Manchester City FC are three points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United FC following a last-gasp win against Reading FC.

City looked like they would have to settle for a draw against bottom-placed Reading, but Gareth Barry headed in David Silva's cross three minutes into added time to earn them victory. United, though, can restore their six-point cushion with a win at Swansea City AFC on Sunday.

In third, nine points shy of City, are Arsenal FC after they won 1-0 at Wigan Athletic FC courtesy of Mikel Arteta's penalty on the hour. Three other teams are level with the Gunners on 30 points. In fourth are Everton FC after a 2-1 win at West Ham United FC, both sides finishing the game with ten men, while Tottenham Hotspur FC dropped to fifth having been held 0-0 at home to Stoke City FC. West Bromwich Albion FC lie in sixth position following a 2-1 triumph at home to Norwich City FC.

Elsewhere, Sunderland AFC eased their relegation fears with a 1-0 victory at Southampton FC, though Queens Park Rangers remain five points from safety having lost 1-0 at Newcastle United FC. Liverpool FC are up to eighth courtesy of a 4-0 win against Fulham FC in the late kick-off.
