Wolves striker Doyle heaps praise on McDermott as Reading gain promotion to top flight

Wolves striker Kevin Doyle has sung the praises of Brian McDermott for guiding Reading back to the Premier League.

The Royals beat Nottingham Forest 1-0 at home last night to gain automatic promotion to the top flight and the former Reading man was thrilled for McDermott and the players.

"I am really delighted for them," said Doyle. "I did not realise they were playing until I turned on Sky Sports News later on in the night and saw the scenes on the pitch and it looked like complete mayhem and brought back some good memories.

"I am delighted for the club because even though I only know a few of the players left from when I was there the people behind the scenes, the staff and the management, are really good people.

"Brian McDermott was chief scout at Reading when I signed for them and he came to see me at some really far flung places in Ireland.

"The run they have been on is unbelievable with 14 or 15 wins and only one defeat. I am really pleased because they are a really great club."
