I was going to listen to this match but it appears that the Cumberland County school computers have decreeded anything with a ".co.uk" in the url, porn. Very odd.
Life is a bitch, aint it.
I'll post things that happen then. I'm watching the match.
In united's only attack, Marcus spills a low cross. Defense clears though. Not a bad error, but one none the less.
Neither side has really come out as the better one so far. They are both not doing anything, but as i write that, Reading Captain Adie Williams scores from a corner, powerfully heading inthe the near post from 10 yards out.
8'th min now,
United 0-1 Reading
Williams scores on a header. 0-1, Reading.
Ward scores for United.
perfect low cross from Brown on the left (between the defence and keeper) and Ward hits it in the back of the open net at the far post.
nothing anyone could do about it.
11'th min 1-1
Marcus saves easily from a Jageilka header.
Weak freekick from Tonge easily saved my Marcus
Marcus doesn't have a good punch on a McCall cross. Commentators think that his confidence may be low after recent errors.
neither side are threatening much right now. mostly taking place in the midfield. United are looking the better side now though.
United almost carved out Reading's defense with another cross. Brown headed just wide.
Another shot by ward just after. Marcus saves at his far post low and at almost full stretch. good save.
Reading have a chance to score. Very good low save, similar to Marcus' save minutes before.
The United backline aren't all on the same page it looks.
lots of pressure from United now. After not really threatening the goal, the have a great shot at the near post. Marcus makes a good save at full stretch. looks looks like he is getting some confidence back.
seconds later reading re-take the lead with a screamer from Forster from 25 yards. rocket into the far post upper corner!
44'th min now
Jageilka's gonna be a good one.
United 1-2 Reading
If United don't go up, i would be suprised if any of Jageilka, Brown, or Tonge aren't in the premiership. Very good players they are.
Reading are applying the early pressure, already forcing a corner. (which came to nothing)
United using their setpieces well. Marcus saves a header than was nodded to his near post. Still a fairly comforable save.
I"m going to have to stop watching now. The season finale of CSI is on now, and on a majority vote where i am, the match is going away. I'll give small updates at the commercials though.
United starting to get back in it.
Forster's goal was enough to win it for Reading.
United 1-2 Reading
