“It was a great reaction from us after falling 3-1 down though, and right at the death we actually had a chance to win it 4-3. I say this full of respect for Reading, but I feel we have dropped two points today. But if that’s a bad day for us, then we are in good shape.
“We showed in the second half of last season what we are capable of by going on a really good run and the boys deserve enormous credit for that. To then carry that on with a bit more expectation, again they deserve enormous praise.
“But this is a tough league and if you don’t turn up and don’t prepare well, then you will get hurt. So far, we have shown good character and good quality but the games are coming thick and fast now.”
