Nottingham Forest grew in confidence over the 90 minutes and created some excellent football to earn all three points against third-place Reading.
After taking a battering for most of the first half Forest came back into the game towards the end of the half and would have been pleased to go in at half time with a clean sheet.
Forest put some great football together in the second half, taking the lead just after the hour mark and defending well to hold onto their lead.
Reading should have taken the lead in the second minute when Kevin Doyle got away from Wes Morgan and fired in a cross which beat Joel Lynch in the air and fell for Jimmy Kebe, but he dragged the ball wide from 8 yards out.
And they came close again four minutes later when Stephen Hunt crossed the ball from the right. The ball came in with pace along the six-yard line to Brynjar Gunnarson as he timed his run well but then headed over from 6 yards out.
It was then Forest's turn to come close when Luke Chambers' throw was flicked on by Robert Earnshaw. Paul Anderson ran onto the ball and his shot was powerful enough but went just wide of the target.
Reading continued to stretch the Forest defence and Paul Smith was called into action twice within a minute as Liam Rosenior and Marek Matejovsky both tried to get the ball past him.
A long-range shot from Rosenior forced a good save from Smith, diving down low to his left to parry the ball and Morgan scrambled the rebound away.
Nathan Tyson managed to last half an hour struggling with a leg strain but eventually limped off to be replaced by Garath McCleary.
As Forest started to get themselves back into the game towards the end of the half the substitute had a half-chance after some good work by Morgan to get the ball to McCleary who cut in well but then shot over.
And a good ball by Chris Cohen gave Earnshaw a chance, but good defending by Alex Pearce forced him wide.
Forest looked more promising as the second half got under way and grew in confidence as the game progressed.
Their best chance so far came just before the hour mark with some good build-up play. Guy Moussi got the ball forward to McGugan who turned and played it to Anderson, who in turn fed it to Cohen. He tried to bend the ball into the right-hand top corner, forcing a good save from Adam Federici, diving to his right to tip the ball over the crossbar for a corner.
And Forest finally got their breakthrough a couple of minutes later with a brilliant solo effort from McGugan who ran down the right and cut inside Chris Armstrong to beat Federici's dive and bury the ball inside the near post.
Great footwork again by McGugan almost produced another chance, but Michael Duberry managed to intervene and block his effort.
McGugan, feeling the effects of an injury, left the pitch not long after, to be replaced by Matt Thornhill.
Forest defended strongly as the game came towards its conclusion and Reading looked slightly desperate as they pushed forward in an attempt to get back on level terms.
It was a tense finish with five minutes of stoppage time to contend with and by the end the Forest fans were on their feet whistling and Billy Davies was on his feet asking where the extra time was coming from.
But finally it blew for Forest's first victory at the Madejski Stadium and as the Reading fans booed, Davies and all the players went to join the travelling supporters to celebrate.

Nottingham Forest recorded a famous FA Cup shock as they thumped Manchester City 3-0 in the third round proper at Eastlands. Goals from Nathan Tyson, Rob Earnshaw and substitute Joe Garner capped a brilliant team performance from the men in garibaldi red.0 Replies 228 weeks
The Trickies began the game well and looked dangerous in the opening minutes, with Lewis McGugan heading wide with a gilt-edged opportunity, after Tyson whipped a good cross in from the right. However, Forest lost captain James Perch to injury early on, with Shaun Wright-Phillips also leaving the field early for City after succumbing to a hamstring problem. Felipe Caicedo had opportunities to open the scoring for the home side, but the Forest defence and 'keeper Paul Smith kept moneybags City at bay. In the thirty-ninth minute the Reds broke the deadlock. A long ball over the top left of center from Wes Morgan was dealt with poorly by Micah Richards, whose weak header fell to Nathan Tyson - who lashed in a stunning volley which was well beyond the reach of City 'keeper Joe Hart, who dived away to his left. Forest then extended their lead in the fourty-second minute, with Chris Cohen overcoming Pablo Zabaleta and placing a low ball in the area to Matt Thornhill. His miscued effort flew in via a large deflection from Robert Earnshaw, and cued for the away fans to go into raptures.
Half-time: City 0-2 Forest
The home side started the second half the stronger and again through the efforts of a resilient back four and recalled stopper Paul Smith, who pulled off several great saves, the scoreline stayed firmly in the Reds' favour. The most notable of these went to substitute Jo, when the ball fell to the brazilian's feet just inside the six-yard box. Looking like a certain goal and lifeline for the men in blue, Forest's longest-serving player and center-back Wes Morgan flew away with a great last-ditch challenge, of which killed the youngsters opportunity in its tracks. For all of City's efforts, the Reds still seemed in control of the tie and comfortable when on the ball and off it. Forest then capitalised on some horror play from veteran Dietmar Hamann to make it 3-0. The former German international threw the ball straight to the feet of Joe Garner - who took the chance gleefully. The 20-year-old ran straight into the penalty area and struck the ball low past both Richard Dunne and 'keeper Hart - much to the joy of the travelling 6,000 fans from Nottingham.
Full-time: City 0-3 Forest
The result means that Forest have earnt themselves a place in the fourth round, of which the draw takes place tomorrow afternoon(Sunday 4th January).

Billy Davies has been named as the new manager of Nottingham Forest. The former Preston and Derby boss takes over from fellow Scotsman Colin Calderwood - after he was axed on Boxing Day following a disastorous 4-2 home defeat to fellow strugglers Doncaster Rovers.0 Replies 228 weeks
He has signed a three-and-a-half year contract at The City Ground and begins officially on Monday 5th. Davies will strive to maintain a strong record in the Championship with the Reds, after leading Preston to the play-offs twice, before moving to arch-rivals Derby County. He guided the Rams to the Premier League in his first seaon in charge, but was sacked after a torrid return to the top flight, with just one win in four months of a season that proved to be one to forget for the club. John Pemberton will prepare and name the squad for Saturday's FA Cup third round tie with Manchester City.
