English nPower Championship Playoff Final 2011: Scott Sinclair Converts Penalty To Make It 4-2 Swansea

Oh my goodness Andy Griffin, why on earth would you do that? The Reading defender has just undone so much of his teams' good work by bundling Fabio Borini over in the penalty area for no reason at all. Borini wasn't even really going towards goal! Phil Dowd instantly pointed to the spot, and Scott Sinclair stepped up looking to make it 4-2 and also to claim his hattrick.

Sinclair scored the opening goal from the penalty too, sending Adam Federici the wrong way and rolling the ball into the net, but this time he opts for power, blasting it to the goalkeeper's right. Federici guesses the right way and so nearly gets a hand to the ball, but he can't stop it going in. 4-2 Swansea with just a few minutes left - that's Reading's astonishing comeback rather derailed, one would suspect. Really, really unfortunate for the Royals, and unless they can get a goal very quickly we've been robbed of a tense end to the match.
