No Goals At Leeds

Reading were forced to share the points, and make it four games without a League win, as neither team managed to score at Elland Road. After a goal-fest last time around things were very different as the game ended 0-0 after both sides entertained in the middle of the pitch. There were few clear cut chances in a match in which a single goal would have won it.

There was certainly no lack of effort from either side, and the Royals should see this as a good away point after a good showing especially in the second half when they had the better of the possession and of the limited chances available. The Royals might have sneaked a win from a Glenn Murray header that was cleared off the line, and that was followed up by an Alex Pearce header that went close. Federici had to be awake to stop a late defeat when Leeds finally got a shot on target with four minutes left on the clock - but the draw was probably a fair result.
