Brendan Rodgers insisted he does not fear the sack and vowed to fight on after Reading's fans turned on him during the 4-1 defeat at QPR.

The disgruntled travelling support treated Rodgers to a chorus of 'you're getting sacked in the morning' and chanted former boss Steve Coppell's name as the goals rained in against the woeful Royals.

"It was a tough night," admitted Rodgers. "I can understand the reaction. I've never experienced that but I've always been taught to fight. I'm not worried. Better managers than me have had that.

"It's not nice but can you blame them? We were poor. But it just makes me more determined."

Reading are now just three points off the foot of the Coca-Cola Championship after they were blown away by strikes from Akos Buzsaky, Jay Simpson, Rowan Vine and Patrick Agyemang.

Rodgers added: "We've had a horrendous start. But what people maybe don't understand is it's a massive task here. My ambition at the beginning of the season was to be up there, but the reality is it's a very difficult job - all the best players have left. I want to give people a chance but I can't watch too much of that."
