Brian McDermott has no plans to "inflict pain" on Andre Villas-Boas

Reading manager Brian McDermott says that he is not aiming to add more pressure to Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas when both teams go head to head in the Premier League this weekend.

Reading manager Brian McDermott has claimed that he will not go out to cause "pain" to Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas when the two sides meet this weekend.

Villas-Boas has had a difficult start to his season at White Hart Lane, recording one defeat and two draws in the side's first few weeks of the new campaign.

"What we have to do is prepare ourselves and get a good performance from our team and that is the only thing that I'm looking to do," ITV Sport quotes McDermott as saying.

"We are playing against Spurs, a fantastic side, and I know Andre quite well so I'm not looking to inflict pain, we are just looking to play our game and put on a performance for our fans."

Villas-Boas was sacked after just nine months in charge of Chelsea.
