Following the three nil defeat at The Den to Reading yesterday, manager Ian Holloway has held his hands up and admitted we had lost our structure during the game, and that was his fault.

Speaking to the official site following the game Holloway said.

‘I’ve always been a bit of a gambler when it comes to winning a game. But we lost our structure, that’s my fault, and I apologise for that.’

Finding ourselves 1-0 down at the break, Ollie made three attacking substitutions in the second half bringing on Jermaine Easter, Lee Martin and John Marquis, but following the third substitution we went on to concede a further two goals in quick succession.

‘We had spells during the game but I thought we were a bit nervous at times. The first goal was crucial. In the second half we had to score the next goal, but that went to them too.’

Holloway goes on to say that we now have to dust ourselves off and learn from our mistakes as we gear up to face Burnley in the next match, and he’ll be doing all he can to get that ‘structure right’ for that game and he wants to see us man mark better on that day as well.

With Shaun Williams and DJ Campbell both making their full debuts against Reading, Holloway is confident though that he has good options available to him – especially following the adding of Ed Upson and Simeon Jackson over deadline day.
