Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback is frustrated that his side let chances to beat Reading slip through their fingers as they lost 2-1 at the Madejski Stadium.

Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback has revealed that the manner of his side's 2-1 defeat to Reading was hard to take.

Royals winger Jimmy Kebe scored a brace to help his side pick up a vital three points in their quest to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

Colback told the club's official website: "The winning goal was difficult to take, especially after we'd just had a couple of chances ourselves.

"I don't think it was a great game. Reading are fighting for their lives and it was always going to be tough.

"We had some opportunities – Alfie [N'Diaye] went through on the keeper, who then made a good save on Danny – so to lose it after that was very disappointing."

Sunderland are now 12th in the Premier League on 29 points, eight points clear of the relegation zone.
