Late goals annoying McDermott

Reading boss Brian McDermott was left fuming after his side once again conceded a late goal to lose a game.

Christian Benteke powered home a header with 10 minutes to go to give Aston Villa a 1-0 victory.

It was another late and crucial goal conceded by the Royals who lost 3-2 at Wigan last weekend.

Reading had looked good for a valuable away point until Benteke nodded home a corner from Ashley Westwood.

McDermott said: "I thought we were going to get a point. I knew the first goal was going to be crucial.

"I thought the shape of the team was good but to lose the goal from a set piece was disappointing.

"I thought we had solved the late goal problem.

"But it's not a six-pointer. It's a game of football and we've got a game of football to look forward to against Manchester United at the weekend."

recently had to complete a difficult project at work. I had to come in early, stay late. I even had to work some 7 day weeks. Anyway, long story short, I'm now a member of Britain First. Slippery slope.
