After Reading’s away game against Doncaster was cancelled last week, they come into the game against bottom side Coventry with a two-week break. Despite snow falling in Berkshire last night, the game is due to go ahead.
Reading manager Brian McDermott – ‘Look at the squad, in the last 22 games we’re top of the league. We took four points from the first 18 available, but we’re top of the league since then. We’re going in the right direction, The boys are doing really well.
Coventry boss Andy Thorn –
“If there`s any blame to be apportioned give it to me, not the players. When you`re in bad situations it`s always very easy to start pointing fingers because everybody wants to blame everybody else. But I won`t let that happen to our group.
