MATTHEW SMITH – READ­ING

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

A TYP­I­CAL game of two halves. Our sea­son was over at half-time but thank­fully the team came out and put in a su­perb 45 min­utes when it mat­tered most.

It’s been a roller coaster sea­son in which is prob­a­bly the worst stan­dard the cham­pi­onship has seen. I feel for Nigel Ad­kins, he’s had no sup­port and with the club own­er­ship still in tur­moil he’s done fairly well.

At the mo­ment I’d give him a seven out of ten. That could change into ten out of ten come May though – and we’re all hop­ing for that.
