Reading's George Puscas gave an honest assessment following Wednesday evening's defeat to West Brom at the Madejski Stadium.

Puscas opened the scoring for Reading in the 11th minute from the penalty spot, scoring his first goal since his five minute hat-trick against Wigan Athletic in December.

Speaking after the game, Puscas said he felt the side played well but were ultimately beaten by strong opposition.

"We played against a very good team, they're top of the league. I thought we played well, the second goal was not good for us because it was difficult to score again. We always have to push."

"I'm always happy when I score because I can help the team. Today was a good game for us but unfortunately we did not take any points.

Puscas looked ahead to Saturday's tough trip to Sheffield Wednesday and said the side would have to be prepared in order to get anything from the game.

"I always try to be positive. It's important for me and for the team to play well. We have a difficult game coming up [against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday] so we have to be ready."

"We'll try like we do every game to be better."
