However, Roberts believes that his players will be dejected with the way they defended Darren Pratley's opener.
"Reading will be disappointed that they allowed Darren Pratley to ghost into position for his goal. We spoke about him together in midweek," he told BBC Sport
"Nick Blackman put in a great shift and deserved his goal. I am a huge fan of his.
"I was with him at Blackburn, and he showed his ability only in spurts. At Reading, people should watch how he gets on."
Reading have four points so far this season.
