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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
