Reading FC Away Days - Cardiff City 2016

Our roving reporters made the trek along the M4 to South Wales last Saturday, the second of their visits for the Tilehurst End.

Yann is the man and let's hope Stam has a plan...

Reading's performance throughout this game was very topsy turvy to say the least, the first half was one of the most boring games of football that I've seen in my life. Cardiff had most of the opportunities during the first 45 minutes, and we had most of the possession.

The second half was a different story, as we began to grow more into the game. Quinn replacing Evans was a big factor in the game and it gave Reading a spark, a feeling that they could do it and pick up the three points. The goal itself was well taken by Kermorgant, a class finish into the bottom corner, after Sean Morrison headed Obita's cross to his feet - thanks for the assist Morro ;)

As always we say who had a good game and who didn't, so to begin with good performances, Joey Van Den Berg, (who was my man of the match) had an absolute cracking game. The man controlled the midfield and was that solid player that we needed in front of the defence who took no nonsense from the attackers.

Another man who played fantastically was Liam Moore, who had a great debut in the centre back role. Moore seemed to win the ball every time he went in for a tackle and was there to cover Tyler Blackett when he was out of position at some points during the game.

Speaking of Blackett he was another one who impressed me, the stature of the man is a presence in itself and if he can carry himself in a confident manner then I can see him keeping that left back position.

No one really stood out as a bad player, but the only man who was a bit meh was Roy Beerens, Roy was quite silent throughout the game and didn't make any impact to be honest. He also missed an opportunity that was so so SO easy to score but still, we need to forget about that and only take the positives from this game.

Thanks for reading once again and let's hope Reading can have more results like this.
