McDermott: We got lucky

Reading manager Brian McDermott admitted his side got lucky in their 3-2 win over Peterborough last night, which means the Royals climb to ninth in the table after three wins in four.

Two sublime goals from substitutes Adam Le Fondre and Hal Robson-Kanu won it for the Royals after Tommy Rowe gave the Posh a 17-munite lead before Simon Church's poacher goal gave his team an equaliser.

McDermott told the RFC official site: ''Give them credit, they played really well. It was difficult, Peterborough were good, in the first half they played really good football and got the goal so it was tough for us. We got the goal from a set play which we were thankful for'.

Brian also paid tribute to Gary Speed and found it a fitting gesture that two Welshman got on the score sheet for the Royals. A minutes applause was also observed before the game by both players, fans and staff of both teams.

'We're all still coming to terms with it really, and football seems to have changed a little bit after what has happened. Gary was a fantastic guy, it's very difficult to understand. It was fitting that two Welsh boys scored tonight.'

The Royals squad will now quickly move to Saturday afternoon's game at Blackpool, who suffered a 2-0 loss at the hands of Leicester last night.
