Reading striker Le Fondre: Man Utd struggle defending set-pieces

Reading striker Adam Le Fondre admits they felt they could hurt Manchester United at set-pieces during Saturday's 4-3 defeat.

Le Fondre admitted that Reading had noted QPR's success in scoring the opening goal at Old Trafford from a Kieron Dyer corner the previous week.

"That's one of our main weapons, set plays, and we took advantage," said the Reading striker. "Some of the goals United have conceded are from set plays, like against QPR, so we were playing to our strengths."
