‘Bottlers’, ‘Yawn’ – Plenty of Cardiff City fans aren’t impressed after FA Cup draw v Reading

Published

on

Cardiff City and Reading will have to play out a replay as both sides couldn’t find a winner in their 1-1 draw at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday. 

The Bluebirds named a strong starting XI for the game, whilst Reading boss Mark Bowen made a number of changes to his team by fielding plenty of the club’s academy players.

Cardiff took the lead on the day courtesy of Callum Paterson who scored from close-range after a header from Aden Flint caused havoc in the Reading penalty area.

That lead didn’t last long though, as Yakou Meite equalised for the Royals with a clinical finish just three minutes after Paterson’s opener.

Tom McIntyre was sent off late on for a second-bookable offence, but the young Reading team held on to force a replay in Cardiff.

It will be their second trip to Cardiff in a short space of time for the Royals, as they gear up for their league game against the Bluebirds on Friday.

Plenty of Cardiff City supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on their latest performance.

Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
