McDermott on fans
Brian McDermott is confident his team can pick up results if we keep playing like we did at Manchester City - and says we need our fans with us to help us achieve our goals.
The Royals have two home games in four days and Brian said, "We've got Swansea on Boxing Day and then West Ham a couple of days later and we're looking forward to them.
"We massively need our fans with us, they took so much credit for getting us over the line last season and we need them to be with us again.
"It was tough to take on Saturday, but one thing I've found over the last few months is that I'm a resilient person and the players are too. You have to be in this job.
"Swansea are a good side, we've played them already this season and were 2-0 up away from home against them. We're looking forward to another full house.
"We have to keep battling. The way we conducted ourselves against the Champions was excellent. We are confident with 20 games to go that if we play like that we can get results."
