In what could be described as an early season three pointer, the Revs dropped a disappointing decision to hated rivals D.C. United on Saturday afternoon 2-1. Rivalry matches seem to always bring out higher scrutiny, bigger pressure, and heated debate, and this one is certainly no different.

Once again the Revs had their hands a bit tied with injuries (Lozano, Feilhaber) and suspensions (Shalrie), so it was up to coach Jay Heaps to get creative and try to put forth a game plan that would garner three points at home.

As has seemed to frequently been the case over the last year or so, goings-on in the boardroom have been hogging the headlines at this particular club, with Fridays announcement that it is to enter into administration throwing the future of Cornwalls most successful non-league club into doubt.

Skip back to Friday afternoon and Reading kept their timely streak going, beating Leeds 2-0 to temporarily yomp to the top of the Championship thanks to Adam Le Fondre's late double.

As expected, there were a few choice tackles over the course of the game (Leeds' Zac Thompson was sent-off after 13 minutes) with Reading's Jem Karacan finding himself on the receiving end of several 'robust' tackles before Michael Brown's flying gooch-first lunge finally caused the Turkish-ish midfielder to limp off with the 23-year old eventually leaving the Madjeski on crutches.
