The three points at home to Southend which saw us out of the relegation zone was followed by a 4-1 defeat by Preston (not unexpected) and a 3-2 defeat by Barnsley (disappointing) dragging us straight back into the relegation zone.
Three points yesterday against Colchester with a convincing 3-0 was a great relief considering that Colchester themselves are doing well despite losing Phil Parkinson in the summer. Blake scored the opener after 36 minutes with Cresswell adding a second on 48 minutes and Blake adding a third with a 52nd minute penalty.
Sadly Phil Parkinsons Hull beat Wolves 2-0 otherwise we would have been out of the bottom three.
Meanwhile signs are that Dennis Wise is continuing to shake up the dressing room are everywhere. Gregan has been told he can go and has already departed on loan to Oldham where he has already scored on his debut (typical). Butler who was replaced as captain by Kevin Nicholls has also been told he can go. Graham Stack (from Reading) and Matt Heath (Coventry) have come in on loan. It is also rumoured that Steve Stone is to announce his retirement.
Meanwhile Reading take on Spurs today at the Madejski Stadium following visits by Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal!
