Sadly the nature of this defeat typifies an extremely poor second half of the season. Having revived morale with a well worked and superbly taken goal from Quinn, the Royals surrendered all three points in stoppage time following an unforgivable lapse in concentration from Williams. As a North End attack progress down the left Williams stood marking space as Johnson hovered just outside the box. Williams had ample time to drop a couple of yards to get goal side but stood motionless as Johnson drifted unmarked into a chasm of space inside the Reading box to fire home the winner. Williams was by no means the only player guilty of sloppy defending on an afternoon littered with defensive errors which on another day might have seen Reading three goals behind by half time.
