Nicky Shorey says it is time for Reading to "man up" as they look to turn their poor form around against Sunderland tonight.

The Royals have struggled since returning to the top flight as npower Championship winners and have collected just one league win so far this season - leaving them 19th in the standings. Brian McDermott's side are four points behind tonight's opponents, who occupy the place directly above them, and left-back Shorey is worried they could widen that gap.

"It concerns me a lot, yeah," he said. "There is not a lot else you can say. It concerns me we're down there but we've got to man up and make sure our performances get to the level they need to be because they haven't been."
