Leeds 0-0 Reading: Instant Reaction

New, comments

Reading tonight ground out a nil-nil draw with Leeds United up in South Yorkshire, the first time a Reading match has finished goalless this season. You can recap all the action below...

Ben Hoskins

FULL TIME: 0-0. Thoughts?

******

HRK gets into a good passing position, and shoots.... Well over. Leeds having the best of the last seconds.

******

'A good 0-0' speaks Dellor on the BBC Berks radio as Federici is booked for, erm, time-wasting.

*******

5 minutes added time, Leeds have a free-kick...

******

A bit of momentum to the home side now, Sharp gets a shot off and wins a corner. Can Reading launch a smash-and-grab win? They break, and Blackman has a penalty shout dismissed.

******

Blackman comes close before Austin breaks away to attempt a halfway line shot... Which Feds chests down comfortably. 10 to go, and here is Billy Sharp. Gulp.

******

First sub of the night. Guthrie on for Akpan- who seems to have picked up a knock. This change didn't work on Sunday, so let's see how we go from here on in.

******

.....Oh! Off the line. Murray's header, cleared at the back post. The corner afterwards sees Alex Pearce come close. Some momentum growing for The Royals. 68 mins have passed by.

******

A free-kick is won just outside the area by Blackman, the finesse of Norwood and Obita stand over it... Norwood hits the wall for a corner.....

******

Since that early corner, which came to diddly squat, Leeds haven't threatened. Reading have had some runs, and Hector a half-chance from a corner. Plenty in this game for the away side.

******

We begin with the dangerous Alex Mowatt winning a corner for Leeds from kick-off. Can we get the opening goal, Reading fans? Comment below.

******

Did Mick Gooding just say the Leeds keeper made some 'really good saves from Blackwood'? Well, we can stew on that blatant reference to today's TTE podcast as the half-time whistle blows. 0-0.

******

A calm, somewhat unexciting 0-0 draw as we edge towards half-time at Elland Road. Nick Blackman with the closest effort from 25 yards. BBC Berkshire commentators praising the impact of Hope Akpan, which is good to hear.

******

Team news is in and Nigel Adkins has named an unchanged starting lineup from Sunday's 3-3 draw against Wolves. The only change comes on the bench where Hal Robson-Kanu replaces Aaron Kuhl.

*******

Plenty of preview material for you to digest as we wait for kick-off, with a stats preview here, a match preview and the view from the opposition all just a click away.
