Reading boss Brian McDermott is delighted with the attitude of his players after defeat to Wigan Athletic.

The loss was a major setback to their survival hopes.

"Everyone came in on Monday and was ready to crack on," he said. "The first 43 minutes of that game (against Wigan), we could have been one up and it could have gone either way.

"You can look at the camaraderie - Wigan were at their best and are a decent side when the opposition are down to 10 men, but our boys hung in there and the camaraderie is first class, so we have got to move on from that and look ahead to our next game.

"They are all raring to go. Everyone is raring to go and looking forward to going there."
