Reading boss Coppell has regrets

Reading boss Steve Coppell again admitted regrets over the way he handled this season after his team dropped into the bottom three yesterday.

He explained: "Since the chairman has come here he's built a self-financing club. That ultimately might be our downfall.

"I didn't spend so much last summer and in January, if it doesn't work it's my fault.

"The manager always gets the blame, when the team do well the players take the credit, my shoulders are broad enough and I'll take it."
