Reading boss Brian McDermott is looking forward to his trip to St James' Park.

Reading have now won three of their last four matches in all competitions, making McDermott confident his team can come away from Newcastle United with at least a point on Saturday.

The game will be McDermott's first visit to St James' Park during a career that spans 36 years.

"I have never been there - not as a manager, a player or scout, so I am looking forward to it," the 51-year-old said.

"I think we can go anywhere and put on a performance. If we put on the kind of performance we have to, we can get a result and that is what we need."
