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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
