Reading boss Brian McDermott admitted his players have yet to reach the level of performance he knows they are capable of producing, but is hoping that changes when they travel to QPR in the third round of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.

The Royals have yet to win in the Barclays Premier League this season and sit bottom of the table with just one point. QPR are one point and one place above Reading but McDermott is aware his side are yet to hit their straps.

"We are still not at the level I know we have got to get to and we can get to or where we have been in the past," he said.
