Reading lost 1-0 at Leeds United in the Championship today.
The Royals gave a good account of themselves at Elland Road. The game was goalless and open up until the hour-mark when Pablo Hernandez put the home side ahead, and handed them a five point lead over third-placed Fulham.
Leeds as expected had the majority of possession and had 16 shots on goal, but few of them really tested Rafael, and Mark Bowen could be disappointed that his side left with nothing in the end.
One player who fans were talking about after the game today was George Puscas. The man who always seems to split opinion continues to do so, but after scoring in his last two before today, he seemed to be turning a corner.
Plenty felt that he put another good performance today, whilst others are still unsure that he’s the man to lead the line for Reading.

Fans took to Twitter after the game to have their say on the Romanian, and here’s what they said:
Like how Puscas is holding it up better. Hopefully he can tee up a shot for Rino or Swift so we get the goal.

Richards and Pușcaș both having a good game doing the work you want them doing for the team. Phillips off for Leeds with an injury, Alioski on #readingfc

General hold up play from Puscas has been far better in the last game or two. Pleasing to see him improving. #readingfc

Bowen taking off our most creative player, refusing to take off Puscas and not reacting at all to that second half? Stubborn… #readingfc

@willow1871 we never really looked like we were going to score, still not a fan of Puscas doesn’t watch the ball not enough work rate. Meite wasn’t himself today and Swift looks tired.
