McDermott talks tactics
Brian McDermott has revealed the reasons behind an alteration to his team's tactics since they returned to the Premier League.
McDermott, 51, led the Royals to the npower Championship title last season and back into the top flight for the first time since 2008. But despite the success of last season McDermott believes a change to Reading's formation was necessary. "We've changed it in the last couple of games and I just think in the Barclays Premier League, if you go to Chelsea and play 4-4-2 you can get out numbered in midfield," he told the club's official website. "I thought the system worked well at Chelsea, and against Peterborough it worked well with the ball, we could have been better without it. But most of all, it's about players."
