Norwich City were unable to make it nine wins in a row against a stubborn Reading at Carrow Road on Wednesday night.

The Royals came to Norfolk fully intent on not committing past the halfway line and just sitting back and looking for the odd counter.

Birmingham (and others) have tried the same thing but the difference this time was that Reading pulled it off, scoring two goals and being a generally well drilled outfit.

The two goals were arguably gifts from Norwich via either a wayward pass or, in the case of the second goal, some less than tight marking.

So close to being nine points clear of third place, only to have it snatched away at the death. A scenario we’ve played to our own advantage several times throughout the season.

Sometimes you kick, sometimes you get kicked”, as Michael Hutchence once sang.

Hopefully this will spur our boys into beating Wigan on Sunday in front of a 5,000 strong travelling yellow army.

Anyway, on to the point of this article and a round-up of reaction from Twitter…
