Reading Boss Praises Swansea City After Draw

Reading Boss Praises Swansea City After Draw

Reading Manager Brendan Rodgers praised Swansea City after last night's goalless draw at the Liberty Stadium.

The visitors started the match the better side, but after a good opening spell from the Royals the Swans controlled the remainder of the match.

Stephen Dobbie, Nathan Dyer and Mark Gower had our best chances to win us the match but we still seem to be struggling to convert our chances into goals.

Gower missed a first half penalty and Dobbie and Dyer had great opportunities in the second half to give us a well-deserved lead.

Reading had a few chances when they counter-attacked but they didn't pose much of a threat to our defence. Things are looking more promising now though, we showed a big improvement from Saturday's poor display and we just need to find some more confidence and extra quality in the final third.

Brendan Rodgers complimented the Swans after a dominant display against his team:

'It was a determined and resilient performance but we were on the back foot for most of the second half,'

'It was a clean sheet which is our second from three games but we have a problem up front as we still haven't scored a goal.

'Our first few matches have been good learning curves for our young players and we will improve but Swansea are an excellent side playing good football and I must pay tribute to them.

'On our part we showed great determination but we do need something more up front.'
