Royals manager Veljko Paunovic was left angered as his side fell to a last-gasp defeat at Coventry City.

The Sky Blues scored in the eighth minute of six minutes added time, completing the turnaround after John Swift had opened the scoring from the spot. 

Speaking on the performance, the Royals boss said: "This is football. Today, we were at the other end of the glory.

"We had an opportunity to score in the last second but then we crumbled and conceded. 

"There is real disappointment in how we conceded, it is on us. We lacked a little bit of experience in these moments.

"Before the final seconds, I was very happy with the game. We calmed them down, got on the ball, created and scored.

"It was going our way - even when we conceded the first goal, we quickly recomposed ourselves.

"Defensively we have to improve. Most of their shots came in the second half when we lost our composure."

The manager also confirmed that he is hopeful Tom McIntyre's injury was not serious, after the defender was subbed off in the second half and had to be assisted off the pitch.

He did go on to bemoan his teams luck in respect to injuries. 

"The fact is, since last year, we have lost more than half of the goals between injuries and departures.

"Our attacking potential is limited at the moment, but we have looked youngsters are coming in and working really hard.

"When you are in this situation, you have to work with what you have and do your best. 

"We'll continue working."

Speaking on the possibility of further arrivals in the coming weeks, Paunovic said: "As you know, I don't like to discuss everything.

"But, you probably should expect something. Right now, there is nothing imminent, but the transfer market never stops until the last day.

"We have not had any enquiries [for outgoings] that I know about, but that is also a possibility."

"We have to expect a lot of teams are looking to improve their teams.

"It could be a temptation depending on how good the offers are, but I look at it in a footballing sense."
