Pretty much just warriors left on the pitch. 3 of the artists are now out. Needed signings over the line earlier but then again this is just plain unlucky. Dack, Palmer and Armstrong all out now. Shame we will probably pick up our first loss. Just wish we had some better players to turn too. Was hoping to stay unbeaten and strengthen the squad.

They don’t give up and if can get a goal Reading will get the jitters.

In a funny way it makes the prospect of signing an aging Jerome and Puncheon quite a good idea :lol:

Lee Hazlewood’s moustache was my spirit animal but now it’s morphed into Charlie Mulgrew’s alice band

Samuel is down, now Armstrong, Dack, Palmer are injured from this match. Hopefully this is not serious.

Played like shit in the first half, without Dack, Palmer, and Armstrong and Samuel going of injured and down by 2 at half....I'll happily take a point. Going into the game I wanted 3 points, but to get one from this disaster of a day is a success. Now let's just hope none of these injuries are long term and the Gaffer can bring in some reinforcements before the loan window closes

Unlucky not to push the win through, though given the first half a draw is a good result. Let's hope Armstrong and Samuel aren't out for long....

To come back from 2 down is great. Was very impressed with the attitude in the 2nd half. Rothwell and Evans’ energy in midfield was excellent. Let’s hope the injuries aren’t too bad and we get some bodies in on loan.

Entertaining match overall. I think Blackburn could have gotten away with a win, but a couple of mistakes from the first half sees Reading pull a draw out. Real credit has to go to Mowbray for the tactical shake-ups when Armstrong went down, and eventually Samuel being subbed. Evans is the stand-out again, playing out of his mind. Smallwood's job is now at risk with Evans performances as of late. Rothwell showing why he could make the starting line-up, real tenacity and effort from him.

Got to take the positive from that fight back. We gave Reading two goals through inidividual errors and with most of first choice attackers out we got something from the game.
