Reading caretaker boss Eamonn Dolan insists that the players are focused on their Premier League clash against Manchester United.

Reading caretaker manager Eamonn Dolan has insisted that the players are solely focused on their Premier League battle against Manchester United.

Dolan has admitted that the team are hurting following manager Brian McDermott's sacking on Monday.

Despite their 'disappointment', Dolan has claimed that "it's not hard" for the players to resume focus on the task at hand this Saturday.

"Going to Old Trafford is a great opportunity for this group of players, they've earned it with Brian, and it's not hard, it's not difficult," Dolan said in a press conference. "It's just a great opportunity for us."

The Royals are second from bottom in the league table with nine games left to play.
