Fans back Federici but Reading lose

Reading fans were out in force to support their Socceroo keeper Adam Federici but it wasn’t enough as the Royals lost 1-0 to Birmingham City at home on Wednesday night.

Federici has received an outpouring of support since his costly blunder saw the Royals beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on the weekend.

A Twitter campaign - #FlagsForFeds – was almost immediately started with fans planning to bring Aussie flags or wear pink, the same colour as his goalkeeping jersey, to Wednesday night’s clash.

And they were true to their word.
