Reading manager Brian McDermott warned the rest of the Barclays Premier League not to write his side off after their dramatic comeback victory over West Brom.

The Baggies had been in cruise control after Belgian international striker Romelu Lukaku had put them 2-0 up. Reading appeared down and out but they conjured a remarkable finish to the game with three goals in the last nine minutes from Jimmy Kebe, Adam Le Fondre and Pavel Pogrebnyak.

The result leaves Reading three points off safety and McDermott believes the teams directly above them - including next weekend's opponents Newcastle - will be nervously looking over their shoulders. "I think so. We are one game, or three points, from the team above us," McDermott said.
