English nPower Championship Playoff Final 2011: Swansea Back On Attack; Fabio Borini Wastes Free Kick

For some reason, the commentators are saying that Swansea have less composure and that Reading are pressing higher in the second half, which is manifestly untrue. Reading have been dominant all game, and were only down by three thanks to a freak series of events. This second half is going just about the way the first half should have. It's 3-2 Swansea with less than twenty-five minutes to go.

There's plenty of time for Reading to equalise with the way that the Swansea defence has been playing, but if the Welsh side manage to get the next goal we go right back to it being (more or less) game over. Fabio Borini has a chance to give them that goal from a free kick thirty-five yards out, but he opts to pass rather than shoot and Joe Allen's shot is charged down. Immensely wasteful from Swansea, considering how the second half has gone so far.
