Don't dwell on the defeat

Paul Lambert has told his players not to be too downbeat after suffering their first defeat in nine outings with the 1-0 loss to Reading.

It was a Danny Williams' wonder-strike that settled a tight encounter at the Madejski Stadium in the home side's favour, but the boss has stressed the importance of quickly getting the loss out of their system.

"Everybody is disappointed to lose but it is important that we don't dwell on it, we have to let it go," said Lambert.

"We can't take anything away from the strike because it was a brilliant goal.

"But we had big moments when we could have scored a couple in the first half when we dominated the game.

"We had some great chances to score with some terrific balls going into the box. Fode had a carbon-copy chance that he had against Nottingham Forest with his header.

"They came into it in the second half as you'd expect, but we had to score when we were on top sometimes that happens.

"We did everything we could to try and equalise, I couldn't fault the guys, towards the tail end we started to have a grip on the game again.

"The lads have been on a terrific run of form, there's nothing to be too down, we lost the game but we'll bounce back next Saturday."
