Cardiff City fought back from two goals down to secure a draw at Reading FC last night, with goals in the final ten minutes enough to secure the visitors a valuable point in their quest for promotion.
An own goal from Callum Paterson had given the hosts an early lead, and Cardiff were dealt a hammer blow on the stroke of half-time when Mo Barrow doubled the Royals’ advantage with a well-taken strike.
Cardiff began to assert themselves in the second period, with defender Joe Bennett finally breaking home defences in the 83rd minute, before winger Lee Tomlin popped up with a shock equaliser in added time courtesy of goal-line technology, sending the thousand plus Cardiff fans who made the journey into raptures.
Warnock’s men showed real character to launch a stirring comeback, and fans will be delighted with the way their side conducted themselves in the second period.
Own goal man Callum Paterson took to Twitter to apologise for his mistake after the game, with fans quick to come to the defence of the talented youngster…
Got to be said it was a great finish ????
