It was a day for gallows humour. "If you're all going to Bournemouth, clap your hands," chanted the Reading supporters midway through a soporific first half. The Queens Park Rangers fans, some of whom held aloft an anti-Mark Hughes banner, needed no encouragement to join in. Little more than an hour later the fate of both clubs was sealed. A goalless draw, which was every bit as bad as the scoreline suggests, condemned Reading and QPR to relegation.
