Andy Carroll Makes A Superb Clearance Off The Line For Reading

Andy Carroll is enjoying a renaissance in his career at Reading, and there was plenty of love out there for the Geordie frontman after making a superb clearance off the line in today's match at West Bromwich Albion.

The 32-year-old was forced into the back of the net after attempting to head away an incoming cross, but amazingly recovered in time to make a dive and clear away a shot on the rebound.

Carroll drew more plaudits for another wholehearted performance in a Royals shirt, despite being on the losing side in a 1-0 defeat to the Baggies thanks to Callum Robinson's strike.

The former Newcastle United striker joined the Berkshire club as a free agent last month, and has since scored two goals in five appearances for the Championship side. Those goals came in a 3-2 win away at Swansea City and a 1-1 draw at home to Hull City.

Carroll could be crucial in Reading's fight to beat the drop, and many fans love how much he is appearing to enjoy his football again, despite reportedly earning only £1,000 a week in Veljko Paunović's squad.

It would be fair to say that his career didn't reach the heights which many expected, with injuries undoubtedly taking their toll on a man who caused plenty of concern for the game's top defenders during his prime.

He will hope to add to his two goals for the club when Reading host Luton Town at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday.
