Reading FC Review of the Season: January nadir with Cup exit and record defeat
New Year, new Reading? Nope, it was more of the same from the Royals as it began with a capitulation live on television. Moved from New Years’ Day to Bank Holiday Monday, a Junior Hoilett brace put the hosts in firm control against bottom club Derby County. 11 points behind Veljko Paunovic’s side, despite starting 15 points worse off, an 86th Colin Kazim-Richards goal and a 91st minute Curtis Davies header meant the team dropped two points and snatched a draw from the jaws of victory. Little did we know at the time, that was to be the high point of a wretched month which turned out to be the nadir of a painful season.
