Reading boss Jaap Stam believes that his side were not good enough as the Royals slumped to yet another defeat.

A brace from Matt Doherty and a strike from Benik Afobe condemned Reading to yet another defeat to take them closer to the relegation zone in the Sky Bet Championship.

Stam’s side find themselves just six points ahead of Birmingham City who currently occupy the third and final relegation spot.

The Royals have now gone eight games without a win during a crucial part of the season. Stam spoke to the press after his side’s 3-0 loss to Wolves:

“Going forward, we couldn’t bring enough. Sometimes we got to the edge of the box, but then you need to be resilient, you need to have that shot, or put that ball in the box – instead of keeping it and waiting for the right moment. But we didn’t do that well enough.

“In the second half we tried to do that better and stay in the game. But if you’re switched off for those couple of moments, you give them time to open up the play and play those diagonal balls, they can score the second.

“You always want to win and I am fed up with losing. The players are fed up with losing too, but we were outplayed today by Wolves. And we weren’t good enough.”

Reading travel to Carrow Road on Saturday, hoping to not repeat the scoreline of the same fixture just last season. The Canaries ran out 7-1 winners with Stam’s men all but defeated by half-time.
