Reading keeper Hahnemann unhappy with Fulham situation

Reading goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann admitted he was not keen on the prospect of helping to eject Fulham from the Premier League.

The American spent three seasons at Craven Cottage, where his USA team-mates Kasey Keller, Carlos Bocanegra, Clint Dempsey, Brian McBride and Eddie Johnson are all regular starters.

He said: "Games against Fulham are always meaningful for me. When we play them it is always pretty entertaining for the American boys and the winners get the banter rights.

"But this time I almost want to downplay it. I'll feel like that especially when I see the guys at Fulham on Saturday because the game has so much meaning to us both.

"I am good friends with them. I see Kasey every once in a while, we end up going to shows together and hanging out. So in some ways it won't be a happy day for me if we win, I could help send my buddies down to the Championship.

"But we need the points to get us closer to safety. We don't want to keep looking over our shoulders. We need at least one more win, and the sooner it comes the better."
