If Reading manage to hang on to their Championship status next week they can count themselves very lucky indeed after today's inept performance. All the shortcomings of the current Reading squad surfaced in the final twenty minutes of the most important game of an extremely poor season. Individual errors and a lack of character contributed to an unbelievable capitulation to a fairly average Ipswich side.
