Reading manager Steve Coppell has warned England Under-21 star Leroy Lita his days at the Madejski Stadium are numbered unless he starts scoring.

Lita has struck just once this season - against Swansea in the Carling Cup nearly three months ago - and was omitted from the squad for Monday´s 3-1 defeat by Arsenal.

"Leroy hasn´t been playing well. I need Leroy to be on the end of things, scoring goals," he told Reading World. "We´re all judged on results - if I don´t get results I´m out. It´s the same for strikers - it´s a competitive situation."
