Steve Coppell admitted he needed time to consider his future following Reading´s relegation from the Barclays Premier League.

Fulham´s 1-0 win at Portsmouth rendered the Royals´ 4-0 success at Derby insignificant as they were condemned to the Coca-Cola Championship along with County and Birmingham.

"I have got to look at things," Coppell said. "It´s too close (after the game) now. I have a huge affection for this club and I want to do what I think is right for this club."
