No excuses we were beaten by a stronger team, a good start before injuries affected our shape or Reading just found their groove and a much improved second half could do little to affect the always likely Reading win.
The excuses:. Having lost Cookey, Whitey and Boots to injury and Tony R being not available it was a shame to then lose Nobby to another hamstring injury and for the same injury to befell Dutch who had come back as cover for Hutts, himself return from serious illness during the game.
Anyhoo, goals by Ed, Pablo and HRH in the second half showed things could perhaps have been tighter.
Great effort by everyone and let's look forward to 2022's cup run!!
