Reading boss cools defensive bust-up

Reading boss Steve Coppell has played down a bust-up between Ibrahima Sonko and Marcus Hahnemann during yesterday's 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough.

"There was a misunderstanding," he explained. "A ball came through, it was in no man's land.

"In a way, it shows they care. At this stage of the season, that game had been built up as one we should win.

"The altercation shows they're passionate about what they do. I've got no problems with that."
