After going into the play-offs as the form team, it was disappointing that form, along with Lady Luck, deserted us when we most needed it.

In the two games against Reading, we edged it when it came to possession and scoring chances but, apart from Tom Cairney`s goal in the first-leg, we couldn`t get the ball past Al-Habsi in the Reading goal.

Following our exit from the play-offs last night, Slavisa Jokanovic took time out to speak to the media, remarking,

‘I believe we played the better football, we were the better team, but we’re not off to the final.

‘Reading scored two goals in this tie after complicated decisions.

‘These situations exist and the push in the box on Lucas Piazon for us didn’t get the same treatment as his decision earlier at the opposite end of the pitch.

‘But, Martin Atkinson is the best English referee, an international referee and I can’t complain.

‘We’re really disappointed as we’ve lost the chance to play in the final after these kind of decisions.

‘We weren’t clinical enough tonight. On one side I’m disappointed but on the other, I’m proud of my team and how they play throughout the season.’


We should remember we`ve come a long way in a short space of time, let`s hope the side will bounce back next season.
