Yiadom | "It's a valuable point"

As far as goalless draws go, few will have been as entertaining and important as the one played out between Reading and West Bromwich Albion on Easter Monday.

And for Andy Yiadom and the Royals, it was a point that put them almost safe in the Championship for another season - barring a big swing in goal difference and results going against the Royals elsewhere.

There were plenty of chances at both ends, West Brom rattled the woodwork twice but it was a valuable point gained from a Reading point of view - despite the lack of goals on the day.

"It was a bit of a frustrating game," the Ghana international admitted after the full-time whistle. "We had a few chances, it was a bit stop-start unfortunately with two injuries for us at the start of the game. 

"But we kept a clean sheet, it was 0-0 and a valuable point. They weren't really celebrations at the end, but we gathered that Rotherham lost at the end, which did mean a lot.

"We'll take that, but we're still being professional and we've got to go to Middlesbrough and get a result.

"It wasn't easy today, they have some quality players and they can still produce a bit of magic from anything. We needed to stay focussed, that's what we did and we got a clean sheet and a point.

"Unfortunately we did get two injuries in the first half, but we've got people who can come on and do more than a job, and that's what they did.

"We stuck to our guns, we did what we could and we kept a clean sheet, so the point was a valuable one.

"There have been ups and downs this year but we've still got two games left, we've got to be as professional as we can and we still want to climb up the table, getting as many points as we can."
