Boss praises Shaun

Defender helps keep clean sheet

Manager Nigel Adkins praised Shaun Cummings for his part in Reading's first clean sheet of the season on Saturday at Yeovil.

Wayne Bridge (knee) and Jobi McAnuff (back) missed the game due to injury, and Cummings came in at left back with a solid display just days after playing in our midweek defeat at Peterborough. 

"Stephen Kelly wasn’t available in there as well for the birth of his daughter, so that was the situation," the manager said. "Shaun Cummings has come in, and has backed a performance up today where we’ve come and got a clean sheet.

"Obviously it was a challenging game the other night for sure, it could have been challenging today but well done to him because we leave Huish Park with a clean sheet.

"I want to win, the players have got to win and we've gone and done that. You have to make calm, collected decisions tactically. That’s what we’ve done through the course of the game and in the end its about seeing it all out."
