Coppell fears relegation for Reading

Steve Coppell admits Reading have been sucked back into the relegation battle after their defeat to Bolton Wanderers.

He said: "We can't beat about the bush - avoiding relegation is our only target. With 14 games still to go, or however many it is, we have a real struggle on our hands.

"I haven't had that at Reading but what a great challenge and we have got to rise to it.

"I have felt for a long time that any three from eight or nine could go down. Now we are significantly one of the three."
