Reading 'have a chance of getting a result'

Manager Brian McDermott: “If everything comes together we have a chance of getting a result. In every game you need to be at your best mentally and physically. Manchester United have been winning leagues, winning cups and competing in the Champions League for years.

"They’re used to this situation at the top end. We watched their game with Real Madrid as a the other night, it was football at the top level, fantastic to watch, great players and what football is all about.”

We must be brave: McDermott

A brave performance is required against Manchester Utd tonight, says manager Brian McDermott. Sir Alex Ferguson’s men team are aiming to repeat their memorable achievement from 1999 – when they added the FA Cup and Premier League title to an unforgettable Champions League victory.

Brian said: "Going into a game like this we have to be brave. We have to get the details right, we have to see decisions go our way and of course we have to play well."
