We beat Reading 1-0 as Khayon Edwards was the matchwinner on Saturday.
Dan Micciche's side responded in the best way possible after back-to-back defeats to claim all three points away from home.
We had the better of the opening exchanges, with James Sweet's marauding runs down the right-hand side causing chaos for the Reading defence.
The game's first notable chance fell to Edwards, who almost rounded off a superb team move, only for his strike to hit the post and be cleared from danger.
We took the lead in the 35th minute, as Sweet's first-time cross fell perfectly to the feet of Edwards inside the box, who calmly slotted the ball beyond an onrushing Matt Rowley.
Reading almost levelled things on the stroke of half-time as Ajani Giscombe was denied from close range by a brilliant last-ditch block from Henry Jeffcott.
Into the second half and Sweet came close to registering his sixth assist of the campaign, but his clever cutback to Charles Sagoe Jr couldn't be converted from 10 yards.
We dug deep to see out the remainder of the half as Edwards' ninth strike in as many games this season was enough to earn us all three points.
