Reading manager Steve Coppell insists the players he will discard before Saturday´s trip to Middlesbrough are not the scapegoats for their current disastrous form.

The Royals have nose-dived alarmingly since Christmas and have lost each of their last eight Barclays Premier League fixtures - an unwanted club record - and Coppell has promised to make changes following the most recent, Sunday´s 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Aston Villa.

He said: "I have shown more than enough faith in a lot of people and would be justified in changing all 11 but because I have faith in a lot of them there will be changes but not that many."
