“So, yes, I’m very happy with this. But I’m more happy because of the way we played and the way that we executed. That was brilliant today.

He then said that the team gave them the opportunities and that "has to stop".

He said:

"we kept giving Reading opportunities. We also had chances ourselves but we didn’t take them. And we can’t really let that happen again over the second half of the season.

“We keep saying the same things but we’ve just got to be more clinical. When you’re playing against better opposition, we have got to be better ourselves. That’s where we’re at."

He added that the team must work for better results. He mentioned that the League is "unforgiving".
