Coppell defies critics as Reading hold United...

So then all the pre-match media carping was answered by Steve Coppell's Reading as they held United to a very creditable 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in the FA Cup on Saturday.

As ever, elements of the media got their proverbial knickers in a twist over Coppell's pre-match announcement that it was likely he'd be fielding a weakened side against the Reds.

Perphaps in future the media will appreciate Coppell's professionalism, because his team did him and Reading proud and fully deserved to take United to an FA Cup replay.
