Twitter Review: Reading 2 - 0 Portsmouth

Rewind time and look at this selection of Tweets from the 2-0 result at the Mad Stad today.

@jeffpovey: Oh Dear. Serious security lapse at Portsmouth Mental Hospitals has led to their inmates escaping & roaming free in Reading Town Centre today

@diddyc_: A win for Reading today would be our 300th victory in the second tier, and their 200th at home.

@SirChrisScott: No Leighertwood today - This is a HUGE blow

@urzz1871: I don't like it - I'm looking forward to Reading vs Pompey far too much. That usually means I end up disappointed...

@Buster_5265: There really are some decent people left in this world, random guy just saw me walking down road in Reading FC shirt and offered me a lift!

@jystyn: On way to Mad Stadium. Gotta win this one today to give me bragging rights back on the South Coast.

@JonnyFordham: Jobi McAnuff in for Simon Church. Griffin back on the bench but no Hunt, Mills or Leigertwood. Kitson starts for Pompey, no Sonko


@DarryllEaton: The giant dishcloth is out, must be a big game
(I'm assuming this is a Pompey fan...)

@iglooant: SHLONG!!!!!

@JonnyFordham: Gooooooaaaall!!! Long smashes it in from 25-yards!

@ajhalls1: Shane Long's goal for Reading puts us above Nottingham Forest and into the play-offs on goal difference.

@willpetley: Shane Long is by far the best striker in the Championship, unreal!

@Brownie1871: Penalty to Reading Long felled in the box. Pompey defender gets red card

@Matt_Hayle: Play-Offs here we come. 2-0

@Andrew_Bone:In other news, Reading march imperiously into playoff positions. Better book my flight for Wem-ber-lee....

@ajhalls1: Hoping Reading can crack on and score a few today. Goal difference might come into play come the end of the season.

@Talkfb: 21,896 at the Madejski today, 4,000 of those from Portsmouth, biggest home crowd of the season that.

@ReadingFC: FULL TIME!!! 2-0 win for McDermott's men. This season is only just starting!

@austin_1981: Great win for Reading up to 6th, looking forward to see my team on tues night :o)

@dom_gilbert: To beat Pompey who were unbeaten in 10 with the injuries we still have I'm absolutely proud to be a Reading fan. 6th place & climbing URZ
