Reading boss McDermott: McCarthy has big chance

Reading boss Brian McDermott was full of praise for Alex McCarthy after their 2-2 draw at Swansea City.

McCarthy was outstanding between the posts at the Liberty Stadium.

McDermott said: "He is more than a prospect. He is a goalkeeper who wants to take the number one spot.

"We have Adam Federici there as well who is an Australian international, Mikkel Andersen who is out on loan at Portsmouth and Stuart Taylor, so we are blessed with really good goalkeepers.

"Alex made some fantastic saves."
