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."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
