Le Fondre: Rodriguez lucky

Reading's Adam Le Fondre believes that Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez should have been sent off for his challenge on Adam Federici during Southampton's 2-0 win at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday.

The challenge resulted in Southampton's opening goal and Rodriguez went on to set up his side's second which Adam Lallana converted.

Le Fondre said: "You would have thought it would have been a red card, wouldn't you?

"It's that little bit of luck that you get. The referee did not see it, Rodriguez went straight through Feds and they get a goal."

The result for Reading looks to have all but sealed their relegation but defender Adrian Mariappa insists that they will continue to fight for every point.

The former Watford player said: "Every game is massive now and all we can do is give it everything against Liverpool next Saturday.

"Everyone is just trying to play out of their skins to stay in this league."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
