The next time a stomach ache holds you back from putting in a solid shift remember the exploits of one Dimitar Berbatov — the man with an arm for a leg and leg for an arm, errr, wrong guy. After breaking a rib in the first half not only did Berbatov continue on, he put Fulham ahead 3-2 in the 88th minute. Unfortunately for the Cottagers Hal Robson-Kanu added a goal in injury time to salvage a point for Reading. 3-3 is the final score — Bryan Ruiz had an absolute beauty of a goal — but the story from this one is Berbatov’s resolve.
