A 1-1 draw at QPR on Sunday means the Royals sit 18th in the table with just five points from their opening nine games.

But Tabb, 28, believes the only problem plaguing Brian McDermott's side is their inability to keep hold of a lead.

"The team's playing well at the moment - you can't say that anyone's playing bad," he told the club's official website.

"We can't be too hard on ourselves - we've scored in almost every game and I think there's some great performances out there.

"We're looking and addressing things as we've been ahead in five of our nine games this season.

"We probably need to stop the other side having so many shots and put our bodies on the line."

Reading host Norwich at the weekend with Chris Hughton's side hitting form after a rocky start to the season and Tabb is targeting a maiden league win in front of the Reading fans.

"It's a home game on Saturday and one we expect to win. We're scoring goals at home and we're playing well," he said.

"We just need to get that first win in front of our fans and hopefully go on a little run."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
