‘Joker’, ‘Unacceptable’ – Plenty of Reading fans fume at key figure after defeat v Coventry City

Reading’s poor start to the 2021/22 Championship season continued on Saturday, as they were beaten 2-1 by newly-promoted Coventry City. 

The Royals finished seventh in the second-tier standings last term, and the club’s supporters would have been hoping to see their side build on some strong showings from last year’s campaign.

But for one reason or another, that simply hasn’t been the case this season. with the Berkshire-based side currently sat 18th in the Championship table, after their opening four matches.

John Swift opened the scoring for Veljko Paunovic’s side from the penalty spot, but they were pegged back after 62 minutes, when Jamie Allen equalised for the Sky Blues.

Matty Godden then fired home a late winner in the final minute of injury-time, to spark jubilant scenes from the Coventry City supporters.

Paunovic made the somewhat surprising verdict in claiming that his side had a ‘solid performance’ in their defeat to Mark Robins’ side on Saturday, despite the statistics heavily being in Coventry City’s favour.

“This is football. We had a chance from the corner but then unfortunately crumbled. We had a solid performance today.”

Plenty of Reading supporters took to social media to react to Paunovic’s recent comments, with plenty being left frustrated by his verdict on their performance.

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