Defender Tim Ream was a disappointed man at the full time whistle last night in our one all draw with Reading.

With their late leveller costing us two points, Ream bemoaned the timing and manner of the goal we conceded because like the manager Neil Lennon, he knows we should have come away with the victory and all three points.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, he explained.

‘It’s a tough one to swallow. Their only real chance comes in the last 30 seconds and they stick it in the back of the net. It’s frustrating. The same thing happened here against Wolves and Watford so it is a bitter pill to swallow, but it is something we have to swallow and move on from.’

Ream goes on to say that the dressing room did feel we’d put in a good performance, had the better of the play and certainly had the better and more numerous chances as other than the goal they had the one cleared off the line and that was basically their threat on the night discussed.

‘You expect to win with 30 seconds to go when ahead 1-0 so, like I said, it’s frustrating.’

As for the injuries, he went on to explain that it did make it a ‘stop start’ first half where getting a pattern and rhythm was difficult with players going off, and then those who came on, having to get with the speed of the match and adjust as always happens with substitutions and he appreciates three injuries in the first period is strange in football as you don’t see it a lot.

‘We’d get into our flow but then it would get interrupted so we never really got going until the second half. It’s one of those things when you deal with injuries and deal with the physicality and you’ve just got to get through it. It feels like a defeat, conceding that late, but we take the point. We’ve moved that little bit closer to safety.’
