Mariappa not too downhearted with Reading position

Adrian Mariappa claims the Reading camp is still upbeat despite slipping back into the bottom three after defeat at Stoke City.

A four-match unbeaten run had lifted the Royals out of the drop zone.

"It was a tough game and they have some big boys - they used their attributes really well and in the first half I thought we stood up to that," he told the Reading Post.

"We're disappointed with the goals, but it's been a positive time for us and we will remain positive."
