Watch: Cardiff's Callum Paterson scores woeful own goal against Reading

Paterson showed great composure to score Reading's opener. Shame it was in the wrong net...

Cardiff came from two goals down in the last seven minutes to draw 2-2 with the Royals on a freezing cold Monday night at the Madejski Stadium.

But Neil Warnock's promotion-chasing Bluebirds got off to a terrible start when 23-year-old Paterson headed in a hapless opening own goal from Liam Kelly's 16th-minute corner.

Cardiff's boss Warnock was sent to the stands in the second half, but after the game seemed to be in good spirits when joking about his right-back's excellent goalscoring instinct.

"Paterson might as well have left it," he told Sky Sports. "But he took [his own goal] well didn't he?"

The crucial away point for Cardiff means they are now four off leaders Wolves, and hold a four-point advantage over third-placed Bristol City. Reading have moved slightly up the table to 14th.
