Reading do the double!

Its a double celebration down at the Madjeski stadium.

Brian McDermott has been announced as manager of the month with Adam Le Fondre winning the player of the month award.

The Royals had a very good January and climbed out of the relegation zone.

were they both deserved?

In my (somewhat biased) opinion, yes.

Le Fondre has been phenomenal off the bench in recent weeks. He's generally been introduced when tiredness becomes a factor and the concentration levels of defenders traditionally begin to wane, and recently he has been exploiting that with brutal efficiency.

McDermott has been very honest and forthright and knows full well that he was somewhat naive during the first few months of the season. Although we weren't having problems finding the back of the net, our commitment to 4-4-2 was seeing us leak far too many goals at the other end. In recent weeks we have changed to a 4-5-1/4-4-1-1 system, become more compact and far tougher to beat.

Prior to late December we were looking dead and buried and absolute dead certs for relegation, but a fine run of form in January has kept unlikely hopes of survival alive. We may not (Sunderland victory aside) still be playing tremendously attractive football, but we are battling hard until the very end of games and the spirit in the squad is immense and that is a testament to the belief that McDermott is able to instill into the players year in, year out.

Le Fondre has been brilliant for Reading, often making the difference.

Well deserved.
