Defender keen to keep starting place

Defender keen to keep starting place

Reading defender Sean Morrison is not planning on losing his place in the Royals team, after an impressive league debut against QPR on Sunday.

The 21-year old made his Premier League and first Reading league debut against Rangers in the 1-1 draw three days ago and seemed very comfortable at Loftus Road, despite missing a crucial header for the equalising goal. Morrison is also keen on keeping his place in the team, with competition from Adrian Mariappa and Alex Pearce imminent.

Speaking to the Official Reading FC website, McDermott said: 'The gaffer gave me the shirt today and now it's up to me to keep it. I knew the first six months I wouldn't have a chance but I've tried to mould myself into the right player and now I hope it's my chance to break through and establish myself as a Reading player.'

'When you grow up playing football and then play as a scholar it's what you aim for - the Premier League. I'm really proud of what I've done and I hope it's the first of many. I guess playing in the cup game at QPR helped my confidence because I knew who I was up against. You see these players week in week out and you know they're world class.'


It's fair to say that the former Swindon defender has done enough to earn a place in the starting line-up this Saturday, but who would you play alongside him? Questions are being asked of Gorkss at the back, but with Mariappa set to return from injury and Pearce edging closer to a first team return, what partnership would you have?
