Reading boss Brian McDermott isn't focused on the pressure at Tottenham for manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Reading have also still yet to taste victory in the Barclays Premier League this season but have only played twice so far.
McDermott is concentrating on getting his own team firing and said: "I don't want to inflict pain on anyone, I just want to do the right thing for us.
"What we have to do is prepare ourselves and get a good performance from our team and that is the only thing that I'm looking to do.
"We are playing against Spurs - a fantastic side - and I know Andre quite well so I'm not looking to inflict pain, we are just looking to play our game and put on a performance for our fans."
