How did Steve Coppell and Glenn Roeder react after Reading's 2-0 win over Norwich at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday? Lets take a look.
Reading manager Coppell was pleased to get a third win in a week but knows there is still a long way to go in the season, and is only focusing on his sides results: 'That is our third win this week at a busy time of the season when the games come thick and fast, but I am not thinking about it in terms of its importance come the end of the season,' Coppell told BBC Sport. 'I am not comparing our season with Wolves and Birmingham's at the moment.
'I still think the middle third of the season establishes the home straight and we have just got to be in a contest with ourselves to get as many points as we can.'
Norwich manager Roeder felt aggrieved by the decision to award Reading a penalty and feels this is the latest in a string of decisions against his side: 'I'm very angry, I'm sick and tired, and so are my players, of referees this year having a bigger influence on the result, by getting major decisions wrong, than anything else,' Roeder told BBC Radio Norfolk. 'Mark Fotheringham is clearly pushed in the back, then the ball rolls down his arm, how the referee cannot see that, or the linesman who gives the penalty, I do not know.
'It's not just happened here today, it happens every weekend, and because of it results of games are being changed.'
