Nick Blackman is delighted with his first week at Reading.

Blackman, who joined the Royals from Sheffield United, impressed in Saturday's 2-1 win, winning the free-kick for Jimmy Kebe's winner.

"The gaffer said 'go and score the winner' which showed he has great faith in me. I've not had that at previous clubs so it was great.

"It was brilliant - the fans were fantastic and right behind the boys. Even when we went to 1-1 they were right behind me and the rest of the team."
