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

McDermott ecstatic with result despite performance

Reading manager Brian McDermott has shown his delight at the result at Ipswich yesterday, despite admitting the performance wasn't at its best from his team.

Two injury-time goals from Alex Pearce and Noel Hunt won it for the Royals, as it appeared Brian McDermott's side were to go down 2-1 as added time approached but the Royals came out with the three points.

McDermott told the official RFC site: 'With this team and group of people we can score late on. It's part of my character [to go for it], at 2-2 there's a big difference between one point and three.'

'I felt the win was just rewards after a couple of games in which we felt we played well but didn't get the results. Did we deserve to win this one - who knows - but the players kept going, and showed real quality to get back into the game.'


The Royals have already accumulated a few comebacks this season against Derby and Coventry but the most notable being at Bristol City, where from 2-0 down with 30 minutes remaining Reading came back to win 3-2.

McDermott and his squad will now move to Tuesday nights game against Peterborough United, who are the second top scorers in the division behind league leaders Southampton.
