READ­ING MUST IM­PROVE FOR BRIGHTON

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

THIS FIX­TURE has pro­duced lots of goals, with both Read­ing and Ful­ham reg­is­ter­ing one clean sheet each in the last six league games at Craven Cot­tage be­fore this week­end and that proved to be the case again with Ful­ham pro­duc­ing a mag­nif­i­cent come­back.

Kit Sy­mons will be de­lighted with his side’s sec­ond-half per­for­mance. They roared back af­ter Read­ing went two up, and what­ever he said to his team at half time ev­i­dently worked. How­ever he will not be happy with the first, in which Ful­ham were ab­ject. Alexan­der Ka­caniklic com­ing on seemed to be the turn­ing point, and he had a ter­rific af­ter­noon.

Ross McCor­mack and Moussa Dem­bele’s linkup play was also ex­cep­tional, es­pe­cially for Dem­bele’s sec­ond. Read­ing will be dis­ap­pointed in the way they suc­cumbed to Ful­ham’s come­back in the sec­ond half. They will need to pick them­selves up for next week­end’s clash against league lead­ers Brighton at the Mad­jeski Sta­dium.
