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

Royals boss satisfied with victory

Reading manager Brian McDermott was very pleased with his side's win over Sunderland, especially the first half performance.

The Royals went in front on just seven minutes and deservedly so, after Jimmy Kebe arrowed his effort into the top corner. McDermott's men were in firm control, until Pogrebnyak's rash challenge gave Gardner a chance to equalise from the spot. However, Jimmy Kebe wrapped up all three points with three minute to go, nodding home Ian Harte's free kick.

Speaking to the Official Reading FC website, McDermott said: 'It was a tough match so we're delighted to get all three points. We started well, we had large amounts of possession against a team with some quality players. We showed real spirit but real quality as well - just look at the ball in from Harte for the winner.'

'You know in that situation that Hartey will deliver. He's been doing it for 20 years! We left it late but kept going and as always team is the operative word. We had to come back again from the disappointment of the penalty but we put a couple of strikers on and tried to win the game.'
