Reading boss McDermott convinced relegation rivals now nervous

Reading boss Brian McDermott feels they've shaken up the relegation battle with victory over West Bromwich Albion.

McDermott believes the teams directly above them - including next weekend's opponents Newcastle - will be nervously looking over their shoulders.

"I think so. We are one game, or three points, from the team above us," McDermott said. "People automatically wrote QPR and Reading off. We have been written off for ages, since we won promotion.

"It is nothing new to me. Since I got the job we have always been written off.

"But we got that first goal and you saw a side that showed real belief and character. That is a game that will go down in lot of peoples' memories."
