Reading striker Adam Le Fondre struggled to get excited about scoring against boyhood idols Manchester United.

But he believes the Royals showed enough to suggest they can win points in a vital month for the club.

Looking ahead to games at fellow strugglers Southampton and Sunderland, Le Fondre said: “Scoring against United was something I dreamt of as a kid but ultimately it’s a results business.

“My goal doesn’t take anything away from the result because we got beat.

“We had a top team on the ropes. If we play like we did today, and tighten up a bit defensively, we have a real chance of going to Southampton and Sunderland and getting the right results.”
