Reading had the better of the forty-five minutes that were pleased and could have had a half-time lead. Pardew believes that had his side scored a first-half opener then the game may well have never been called off.
"I'm very disappointed. They were difficult conditions and tough for the players, but I thought that we adapted better than they did and if we had scored a goal I don't think the referee would have made that decision," he said.
"We were playing really well and wanted to keep going, we were terrific in the conditions."
Whilst the PA system at the ground announced that both manager's had agreed to bring the game to a premature end, Royals boss Alan Pardew insists that the referee made that decision on his own.
Recalling the series of events he said: "I went to the ref as soon as the half ended because it was obviously a difficult one for him as I wanted to see what his mindset was. He told me that he wanted to play for the first ten of fifteen minutes of the second half and we'll see from there, and I was happy with that.
"It was a tough decision for him but I've got to tell you that I wasn't happy with it, and the fans who have travelled miles to get here won't be happy either.
"It's a nice gesture from the club to reduce prices by 50% for the rearranged game, but it's still 50% the fans will have to cough up."
Pardew's side will now dry themselves off for their FA Cup Third Round clash away at Walsall on Saturday afternoon.
