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

Match reactions Man City v Reading

This is what the personalities on each side had to say to say after Reading's 2-1 defeat to Manchester City at the City of Manchester Stadium.

Manchester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson told the BBC, "It was a great goal from Stephen. He is playing better and better, which is fantastic. Samaras played his part as did Geovanni.

"I did not expect it, especially as Geovanni had missed a great chance just a minute earlier.

"He was like a second striker near the end. Maybe that is his best position. Stephen is young, talented and has a long career in front of him."

Reading boss Steve Coppell told the BBC, "We contributed fully to the game and it was hard to concede a goal so late on in the match.

"We went a goal down but knew that we would get a chance to get back into the match and when we equalised felt we'd get at least a point.

"The ironic thing was that all the delightful football they play they got the winner with a long ball."

The late winner was cruel on Reading, this should give encouragement to future away games however.
