Managers Brian McDermott and Chris Hughton praised the defending on show after the goalless draw between Reading and Norwich at the Madejski Stadium.
Reading are still without a win in the Barclays Premier League this season and remain in the bottom three, while the Canaries extended their unbeaten run to four games. McDermott pinpointed a first clean sheet of the season as the positive for the Royals and was not upset that a league win remains elusive.
When asked what pleased him with the result, McDermott said: "Keeping a clean sheet, obviously."
