McDermott says Reading up for Premier League kickoff

Reading boss Brian McDermott is confident his players will be ready for the Premier League kickoff.

Reading host Crystal Palace at Madejski Stadium next Saturday (3pm) in the final build-up match to their Premier League opener against Stoke City on August 18.

And McDermott said: " I'm glad it's two weeks [away], it gives us time to prepare, keep working. We need that and come the first game at Madejski we'll be ready."
