Reading boss Coppell won't blame Hahnemann

Reading boss Steve Coppell has refused to criticise goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann after Saturday's defeat at Blackburn Rovers.

Hahnemann's positioning was questionable for Rovers' second and third goals but the Royals manager refused to blame his American goalkeeper.

"I think he was unsighted (for the third) and it was just the angle (for the second). Goalkeepers come out and make themselves as big as possible. Sometimes you save them sometimes you don't. He has been terrific for us so I've got no qualms with him."
