‘Schoolboy defending!’ – Reading fans react to failure to beat ten-man Fulham



Despite playing against ten men for virtually the entire match, Reading failed to beat Fulham, whom they defeated en route to the Championship play off final last season, on Saturday afternoon, as the match finished in a 1-1 draw

Tomas Kalas, having conceded the penalty that allowed the Royals to secure their Wembley birth last season at the Madjeski Stadium, continued his woes at the same ground, when he was sent off within the first minute of the match.

The Royals toiled in search of a goal to break the deadlock, but finally made the breakthrough on 61 minutes, when Liam Kelly put Jaap Stam’s men in front.

However, a former Royal was to deny the home side all three points as Lucas Piazon slotted home a wonderful solo goal eight minutes from time.

Reading fans on Twitter reacted to the result by calling for more signings, especially in the striking department, in order to avoid the kind of profligate finishing that saw them unable to finish off the game yesterday.

Scorn was also poured on Chris Gunter, whom some fans was at fault for Piazon’s late equaliser.

Reading fans – what do you make of your side’s failure to break down ten men? Are you concerned by your wait for a first league win of the season? Let us know in the comments below…
