The debrief: Reading (A)

Dean Holden assesses City's 3-2 loss to Reading at the Madejski Stadium.

Here's what he said in his post-match press conference:

  • Holden said it was not like City to concede three games away from home and “as a team we haven’t defended well enough”
  • City should have defended better on two of Reading’s three goals but admitted that Liam Kelly’s goal was “a screamer”
  • The assistant head coach added: "We need to swallow our medicine and move forward"
  • He believed City were on the wrong end of a penalty decision with a Reading defender connecting with Adam Webster’s head
  • City created at least 20 chances in the game and “probably deserved a point” but he admitted they “need to be more clinical”
  • Holden praised Jack Hunt for the build-up to Marlon Pack’s goal before the defender came off with an abdominal issue
  • He said the players’ attitude was “first class and every time they go on the training pitch they are working their socks off”
