I think it was guaranteed whether you go or not Bish, who knows we might scrape a 0-0 draw.

They (Reading) can't win lately. That will change Saturday when we roll into town.

The most annoying thing is the Titanic went down because of something clearly visible unseen by the Captain and crew yet our senior officers don't see anything either.
I'd excuse Nelson for his lapse of vision, he hadn't got the technology of the replay on a TV screen and Lennon ain't no Nelson!

Reading could be managerless by the time of the match on Saturday... they've cancelled their normal pre-match press conference today and Steve Clarke is looking likely to take over at Fulham.

Might help us out a wee bit...

Apparently Reading are going to appoint Nigel Pearson, though whether it will be in time to marmalise us is another question.

Lennon's presser quotes, via the club Twitter:
The situation at present should act as extra motivation for the players. It should galvanise the club.

It's not an excuse to hide behind - we need to get out there on the pitch and prove our worth.

We're in a difficult situation, more so than last year, but I believe that we have enough about us as a team to get out of it.

Ultimately, putting the ball in the net is going to prove the difference - our performances overall have been good generally.

We go to Reading this weekend knowing that they'll be a tough opponent for us, but we're ready to hit the ground running.

The challenge that lies ahead is games against sides up there at the top end of the table, but that is the nature of the game.

We need to cope as best we can with the players that we've got at our disposal at present. They just need some confidence.

Our away form has been poor, so this weekend is as good a time as any to eradicate that record.

Mark Davies should be fit for Saturday, although Stephen Dobbie is a doubt after picking up an injury against Bristol City.

As long as we keep creating chances, I'm confident that the goals will fall for us eventually and we can turn draws into wins.

We're keeping enough clean sheets which makes our lack of goals even more frustrating.

Talk about throwing the cat amongst the pigeons; Reading are probably going to be managerless Saturday, looks like Steve Clark's doing a flyer!!!
