McDermott thrilled with Royals' resolve

Published Add your comment

Brian McDermott praised Reading's fighting spirit after they twice came from behind to win their Capital One Cup third-round clash 3-2 at QPR.

QPR twice took the lead through Junior Hoilett and then Djibril Cisse, but saw their efforts chalked off by Kaspars Gorkss and an outstanding Nicky Shorey free-kick. Former Fulham striker Pavel Pogrebnyak turned the tie on its head with a late backheel that saw the Royals progress to the last 16, despite him missing a stoppage-time penalty.

"I was proud of my team and the way they came back," said Reading boss McDermott.
