The Anglo-Nigerian and the Ivory Coast international were on the scoreboard as the Royals ended their five-game winless streak.
Ovie Ejaria and Yakou Meite found the back of the net to help Reading secure a 3-1 win over Bristol City in Saturday’s championship game.
The Royals last won a game in October against Blackburn Rovers, losing to Coventry City, Preston North End, Stoke City and Bournemouth before playing a draw with Millwall on Wednesday.
Ejaria and Meite made key contributions to getting Veljko Paunovic’s men back on track to victory at Madejski Stadium. The game started at a high pace with both teams aiming to open the scoring, but despite their efforts, the first half ended without a goal. However, Ejaria broke the deadlock in the 54th minute after receiving a punctual pass from Lucas Joao.
Nahki Wells evened the proceedings for Bristol City in the 73rd minute, Meite then restored the lead to Reading three minutes later before Joao sealed the win with a good shot to the death.

Ejaria played for 90 minutes before being replaced by Tomas Esteves, while Meite made way for Nigerian international Sone Aluko.
Senegalese international Famara Diedhiou was on parade for 56 minutes before being replaced by Chris Martin, but was unable to help his team avoid defeat.
Ejaria has now scored two goals and provided two assists in nine league appearances for Reading this season, while Meite has five goals in 10 games.
The victory in the game has moved the Royals to third place in the Championship table after accumulating 26 points in 14 games.
The African stars look forward to helping Reading continue their impressive form when they face Sheffield Wednesday on December 2.
