Reading boss Coppell delighted with Lita, Kitson back

Reading boss Steve Coppell was delighted to see Leroy Lita and Dave Kitson back in action for this week's Carling Cup victory over Swansea.

Coppell said: "It is nice to have Lita back, but for both him and Kitson to play the full 120 minutes, they did terrifically well to come through it.

"In everything we did, I thought we showed our desire to be in the next round.

"I know people criticise what I do in cup competitions with changing the players around, but we always want to go through.

"We were playing against a very good side. I want to compliment Swansea.

"I had watched a couple of their games, and they play effective football which is pleasing on the eye. I knew it was going to be a difficult test."
