5 things we learned from Reading v Wolves
Extra bit of quality tells for Reading
Wolves were much the better side after they got the equaliser five minutes into the second half, but they weren’t clinical enough when on top.
Coady forced Al-Habsi into a fine save six minutes after levelling things up, but other than that, they didn’t make the Reading keeper work enough for the territory and opportunities they put themselves in, with Edwards and Dicko both guilty of getting in good positions, only for the end product to let them down.
And that’s where Reading’s quality ultimately told.
Swift’s free-kick was excellent, right on McShane’s head and, although the defending was questionable, the delivery wasn’t.
It was that moment of quality which won Reading the game on Saturday, and has thus strengthened their position in the Championship play-offs.
