Bobby: We Must Sort It

Bobby Zamora says the players have to live up to their reputations in the remaining games of the season.

Echoing the thoughts of Alan Pardew following the third away defeat on the trot at Reading, he admits:

"We are working on a few things and it has to be sorted - we have got better players than Sunderland, Millwall, Reading, and I think at times they wanted it more and we have to buck our ideas up.

"I was disappointed on Saturday and we have to look at how it is when teams want to battle us; that is all Reading wanted to do, and they wanted a fight.

"We just didn't produce once again and we are all majorly disappointed - it is something the gaffer had a lot to say after the game and since.

"It was just one of those days and if you are not playing well you have got to work hard - and maybe we have got to work harder."

Bobby's dismay is exacerbated by the fact that he feels the 4,600 supporters - of whom he is one, of course - were let down at the Madejski stadium and he says:

"Our fans were spot on and you can't fault them; we were just disappointed that we didn't bring them anything, exactly the same as Sunderland and Millwall.

"Obviously we want them to keep sticking behind us and I am sure we will start to pick up.

"We have two games coming up and two wins will be important."
