Midfielder left frustrated at the hands of his former club as Reading confine Town to narrow defeat on the road

Jay Tabb felt Town’s performance at his former club Reading deserved at least a share of the spoils, as Blues suffered a first League defeat of the season.

A first-half strike from Jake Taylor won it for the Royals, despite Mick McCarthy’s side going close on a number of occasions- including a last minute Tyrone Mings header that came back off the bar.

“I thought the lads did well today but unfortunately the result doesn’t reflect our performance,” the midfielder told the Club website.

“The manager wasn’t too happy with our first-half performance but I certainly thought we improved in the second and probably deserved something from the game.

“We put in a good performance but unfortunately just couldn’t find that elusive goal.

“Tyrone [Mings] has gone close with a header at the death there that has come back off the bar and even though I wasn’t on the pitch at the time, I was up celebrating with the rest of the bench.

“It’s frustrating not to have taken anything from the game but with the nature of the Championship, we have a chance to put that right against Birmingham on Tuesday.”
