Reading assistant boss Kevin Dillon has revealed how they plan to stop Aston Villa powerhouse John Carew this weekend.

Dillon told the Reading Evening Post: "You can defend against Carew - you can defend against anybody if you do it properly. You can get your body in the way, put them off, stand on their toes, grab them by the Vinnie Jones's!

"If you had 10 corners against Carew and were told that if he scores you'll get fined then you'd find he won't score - and that's the mentality you have to have."
