Reading FC 0-0 Bolton Wanderers: Positives & negatives

Reading’s somewhat tedious goalless draw with fellow strugglers Bolton on Saturday was met with a curiously mixed reaction from supporters.

Cherries take advantage of woeful Reading’s second half

Reading’s horrific run of form continued last night in a substandard second half performance with AFC Bournemouth’s Pitman bagging a brace.

Eddie Howe’s A.F.C Bournemouth disposed of Adkin’s struggling Reading side in a 3-0 victory to make it 3 wins on the bounce, whilst the result puts Reading into 17th after failing to register a win in 6 league matches. 823 more words
