McDermott happy with Reading FC responseBy Jonny Fordham

Brian McDermott says he can have no complaints with where Reading are in the table after their indifferent start to the season.
Royals are in 15th place, five points above the relegation zone and five adrift of a play-off spot after their opening 10 games in the Championship.
McDermott said: “We are about where we should be as I feel the results have been about right in most of the games.
“We had the low point against Watford (losing 2-0 at home), but I’m really pleased with how the group have reacted since that game.”
Last season Royals famously left it late until they surged up the table with an impressive eight victories, stretching from the start of March to the middle of April.
But McDermott said: “Hopefully we can get things going a bit earlier this season.”
* Colchester United are keen to hang on to Royals loanee Michail Antonio until the end of the year. The winger has scored twice in 10 games for the U’s already.
