Brian McDermott has defended striker Matej Vydra to BBC Radio Berkshire after his side's 1-0 loss to Mk Dons.
Responding to the suggestion that the Czech international was 'mentally shot' after another disappointing performance, the Reading manager responded defiantly.
"I'm not sure what you mean by that," said the 54 year-old. "I wouldn't say that, he's worked very hard for the team.
"I have no problems with him. I don't feel we should be reacting in that way about one particular player. He's disappointed, as we all are."
