Reading midfielder Tabb: We've had some great performances

The Royals midfielder believes that his side is performing to a high level despite not yet winning in the Premier League this season, and that their only problem is holding a lead
Reading midfielder Jay Tabb believes that the team is playing well despite not securing a win in the Premier League so far this season.

Brian McDermott's side currently sit 18th in the league table with five points from nine games, though they have gone two games without losing in the Premier League, a 3-3 draw at home to Fulham and a 1-1 result away to QPR.

The 28-year-old feels that the Royals' only problem is their inability to hold onto a lead.

"The team's playing well at the moment - you can't say that anyone's playing bad," Tabb told the club's official website.

"We can't be too hard on ourselves - we've scored in almost every game and I think there's some great performances out there. We're looking and addressing things as we've been ahead in five of our nine games this season.

"We probably need to stop the other side having so many shots and put our bodies on the line."

6/5 Reading are 6/5 with bet365 to beat Norwich this weekend
Reading host Norwich in their next game, and Tabb expects his side to win in front of their own fans at the Madejski Stadium.

"It's a home game on Saturday and one we expect to win. We're scoring goals at home and we're playing well," he added.

"We just need to get that first win in front of our fans and hopefully go on a little run."
