Royals boss praises Sky Blues

Royals boss praises Sky Blues

'Did we play well against Coventry? No, not particularly, we had to hang in there and get the result we need, but we`re in the play-offs.'

The verdict of Reading manager Brian McDermott after Saturday's goalless draw at the Ricoh Arena secured a top six place for his side but also ensured a positive end to the season for the Sky Blues.

Against a team who could be in the Premier League next season, City were forceful from the start and created a host of good chances as they continued their positive, attacking form under Andy Thorn.

McDermott continued: "We knew it would be tough. We played with a little bit of tension, we had a couple of chances, but Coventry played really well.

"I didn`t want to go into next week`s game having lost here and being looking over the shoulder.

"The dressing room was a little bit flat afterwards because we have played better than that, but the result was the most important thing."
