Reading manager Jaap Stam: “It is certainly a lesson for my team. You have got to start aggressively against a team like this, otherwise they will make you pay. We started better in the second half, possession-wise, but we do not create many chances. But credit to the opposition they have a lot of quality, skill and speed up front. You learn something from the movement of their players.
On why they started so slowly: “It could be a little bit of stagefright. But we are all humans, we all have feelings, you cannot programme them like computers.”
