'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Gorkss red rescinded

For the second time in a week, Reading have had a red card overturned by the Football Association.

The person in question in Kaspars Gorkss, who was sent off against his former side QPR on Sunday by referee David Coote, sliding in on Junior Hoilett. This decision comes a week after Alex Pearce had a red card rescinded for his sending off against Sheffield Wednesday.

Luckily with Gorkss, we only had twenty minutes to go with a two-goal advantage, unlike Pearce it was the majority of the game. It means the Latvian defender will now be available for the next four games, which he would have missed if it wasn't overturned.

It's fair to say we really haven't had the best of luck with referee's this season, especially recently, considering the stonewall penalties denied at Blackburn and Ipswich. Hopefully we get a few decisions going our way in the next few weeks!
