Any City fan would have probably taken a point away at second placed Reading today, and for 88 minutes it looked the three and a half thousand travelling faithful were going to get that point. Then, Michael Chopra (who else) playing in his last but one game for the club on his loan spell, popped up to give City the lead and it looked, like all three points.

However, deep, deep into injury time - five minutes in it appears, Reading's 'keeper of all people, put the ball into the net from a corner, and Reading saved their blushes.

I'm mortified that City having worked so hard, have yet again squandered a lead late in the game. This isn't the first time this season, and the frailty of their defence at times suggests it won't be the last. I wonder what manager Dave Jones will make of it. I'll bet there's not too many cheery faces in the away dressing room at the moment, and I'm personally getting fed up of saying "a point's a point" when it really should have been three.
