Fulham 2-4 Reading: Match Review

Craven Cottage

Reading scored an unlikely against Fulham at Craven Cottage to leave the west London club still peering over their shoulder.

Martin Jol post-match…“The first half was not good enough by our standards. We wanted to take the initiative. We gave away easy and cheap goals and we have to change that. Although they played better we were still in it.”

Nigel Adkins post-match“There has been a good steady progression in every game. To come away from home and score four is good. It was exciting for the supporters. The attitude and application has been first class from the players and all we can do is keep looking forward.”

Good day for…Hal Robson-Kanu: Kept his nerve to tuck home a penalty to put Reading in front before scoring the crucial second to seal a morale-boosting win. A real threat all afternoon.

Bad day for…John Arne Riise: Gave away the penalty that lead to Reading’s first goal with a clumsy tackle and struggled from thereafter. Was no surprise when he was hauled off early in the second half.
