Reading boss Jaap Stam said:

"It's about conceding and scoring goals yourself. They scored two, we don't score and we don't get any points.

"You can't say one team was really the better side. The confidence is there. We just give away stupid goals and sometimes you need that bit of luck to score.

"Liam Kelly wasn't feeling well so didn't travel and we needed to take out John Swift as we need to make sure he'll be fit for the rest of the months ahead."
