Reading boss McDermott big fan of AVB work at Spurs

Reading boss Brian McDermott admits he's a big fan of what Andre Villas-Boas is doing at Tottenham.

Spurs are missing Gareth Bale through suspension but McDermott does not believe that will make any difference to their side.

He said: "I know Gareth Bale is suspended, and he's a top, top player, but Tottenham are not a one-man team and whoever comes in will be another terrific player.

"I really like the manager there, he's a terrific friend of mine, he's doing a great job there and they've got one of our old players, Gylfi Sigurdsson, who was here from 14 years old, and he's a top lad. We know what we're coming up against, and it won't be easy."
