And then there were two

Sod's law that after a draining if ultimately fruitful 120 minutes at Anfield on Wednesday, Reading's next opponents would be the side who are now our closest challengers. Forest duly capitalised on the Royals' weariness, notching up two first-half goals at the City Ground and holding on for a 2-1 win which has cut our lead to just two points.

We do have two games in hand, though, the first being tomorrow's clash with the Baggies. A few weeks ago it looked like being a face-off between the two likeliest contenders for the title - but now our home game against the Tricky Trees (now also a televised Monday night game, taking place on 29th March) appears even more significant.

Still, at least there was one result to cheer yesterday, eh?
