Coppell - We Couldn't Break Them Down

Coppell - We Couldn't Break Them Down

Reading boss Steve Coppell was pleased with his side`s performance despite only picking up a point in W12.

The Reading manager told readingfc.co.uk that he was happy with the effort that the Royals put into the game and a little more luck, he believes, would have won them the game.

He said: 'I think anyone who was here will appreciate the effort we put in, you could see it etched on everyone's face.

'Maybe everyone thought we could have played a bit more, but that was really, really difficult to do.

'The pitch made it tough and the wind was deceptively interfering.

'I thought a lucky break might settle it, to be honest, and I thought we edged it, but the goal never came.'


The Royals boss believed that despite the excuses given above his side were the better of the two, but failed to break down a strong Rangers defensive unit in which Gavin Mahon played an integral role.

He said: 'In many ways I think we edged it but it was just so scrappy.

'QPR had a holding midfielder, and in various games this season we've struggled when presented with that five man midfield set up.

'I didn't feel as if we did so much today, but they made it very difficult to get at their back four."


Coppell also revealed that maligned winger Stephen Hunt believed he was fouled in the second period when stretching for a loose ball in the area.

He continued: 'Hunty felt he was blocked getting on the end of a shot, but it was probably a day when the draw was the best outcome.'

Reading now look to continue their promotion push next Saturday as they host Preston North End at the Madejski Stadium.
