- A Peterborough fan regretted his actions in Saturday’s win over Reading
- The antagonist appeared to try to spit at Reading supporters inside the ground
- But did a fall on the divider railing inside the floor separating the fans
A Peterborough supporter was quick to regret his decision after trying to upset Reading fans in Saturday’s League One clash.
Peterborough pulled away from the Madejski Stadium with three points on the opening day of the new season, but one fan found themselves in hot water.
In what has become commonplace in English football clashes, over-enthusiastic fans divided by stewards in the stands shout abuse at each other from different sections of the stadium.
The supporters in contention try to get excited and on rare occasions things get physical, as was almost the case in the League One encounter on Saturday.
Video posted to X – formerly Twitter – shows a Peterborough fan climbing onto seats which have been covered so as not to be used to get close to Reading ultras shouting from the other side.
Unsavory scenes on matchday one of the new League One season took place in Reading’s home loss to Peterborough
An unfortunate Peterborough supporter fell over a barrier inside Madejski Stadium
The typical rude exchange takes place before the visiting fan appears to be trying to spit over the barrier into the crowd.
However, the seemingly disgusting effort doesn’t go as planned, as the young ticket holder soon found out immediately after the attempt.
Crazy in Love! The fan found himself behind enemy lines among Reading supporters after they fell
Rising to try to rise above his targets, the supporter overcooks his jump and falls face-first onto the railing and into the ground.
Falling head over heels, he lands between two flight attendants who understandably don’t seem to understand what just happened.
The moment of slapstick madness continues as the embarrassed fan quickly realizes he has fallen within range of Reading supporters and jumps to his feet.
Some fans want to lure the Peterborough attacker into the crowd, but he left as quickly as he came and leapt over the barrier, unharmed but regretting his actions.
