Ireland international Paul McShane has always been a jovial character.

The no nonsense 30-year-old centre half is currently with Championship side Reading and he started last night's clash with Fulham on the bench but, well according to himself anyway, he played a pivotal role when he entered the fray.

The Championship clash was abandoned at half-time, with the score at 0-0, due to fog.

McShane was introduced after 45 minutes in place of Callum Harriott and played a full 30 seconds before the half-time whistle blew and the teams did not return for the second period.

McShane is well aware of the impact he made.

"I made such an impact in that 30seconds that Fulham got the game called off. Clever," said McShane Twitter.

Referee James Linington had twice consulted with Reading and Fulham officials during the first half when conditions began to get worse.

Ironically, much of the fog had cleared during the interval and the second half looked set to take place.

However, an announcement said that conditions outside the stadium had deteriorated and that the game had been abandoned.
