'If It's Football, It's Vital'

McDermott: It was a really good response

Reading boss Brian McDermott has been full of praise for his teams response against Doncaster Rovers that saw their five match losing streak come to a abrupt end.

Goals from man-of-the-match Simon Church and Adam Le Fondre fired McDermott's men up the table into 14th, nine places higher than they were before the 2-0 victory.

McDermott told the RFC official site: 'We made a pact that we cannot be outfought, outworked and outbattled like we were against Watford last Saturday. We worked really, really hard in training this week because we know we haven't done ourselves justice so far this season.'

The Royals boss was also quick to praise goalscorer Church and Le Fondre, who both scored their first of the season for the Berkshire club.

'Churchy's goal was a bit of a scrappy one, but we were very pleased to take it. And the second one, a great cross in from Millsy and a terrific header from Alfie. He still had a lot to do, but it was a great finish.'

Donny boss Sean O'Driscoll on the other hand was displeased with his teams performance, saying they committed to many errors and believed the second goal should not have stood.

'We made too many mistakes and in this position you can't afford to make many mistakes. He got one hand to the ball and Le Fondre jumped into him. In English football if you jump into the keeper you give away a foul.'
