PAUL Clement insists Reading FC fans will soon see an improvement in results.

Royals were booed off the pitch after a 1-0 defeat to Phil Parkinson’s Bolton last weekend.

Their third straight Championship defeat made it the club’s worst league start to a season in 59 years.

Clement's men did manage to stop the rot by earning their first point of the season in a 2-2 draw at Blackburn on Tuesday night.

And Royals' boss is confident results will soon turn around and that hard work on the training ground will begin to bear fruit.

“You are starting to see the product of the hard work that goes on, but it’s always evolving," said Clement.

“We’re always trying to improve. We may reach a point where we take another path because if you play the same way all the time you become predictable and teams suss you out.

“I had that at Swansea last season and they suss you out really quickly in the Premier League.

“We had brilliant results in the first five or six games then one point from the next six or seven. We had to change, and we have to be ready to do that here.

“But I think the signs are there, we’re a team that’s changing its ideas.”

Defeats against Derby County, Nottingham Fortest and Bolton left Reading in the bottom three going into the clash at Ewood Park.

They remain one place off the bottom after the draw at Ewood Park where a Jon Dadi Bodvarsson brace put Royals into a 2-0 lead in the first half before Rovers skipper Charlie Mulgrew scored two penalties after the break - both conceded by Paul McShane.

Royals striker Jon Dadi Bodvarsson scored twice at Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night.

Clement’s men are back on the road this Saturday when they face another tough clash at Aston Villa (3pm ko).

Royals’ boss could be forgiven for parking the bus or adopting a direct approach in those games in a bid to halt the losing run.

But the 45-year-old insists he is not ready to abandon his principles.

“We don’t play direct football with long, aimless balls with Sam Baldock and Marc McNulty up there,” he explained.

“Strong defence is the foundation then, when you win the ball back, we can break with pace.

“The idea is to get the ball forward and create opportunities from fast attacks.”

He added: “The quality of the goals we scored from open play against Derby and Nottingham Forest were fantastic, you won’t see two better team goals.

“But we need to find a level of consistency where we continue to create good opportunities for our forward players.

“I still have a lot of confidence in the players. They are trying hard but that’s not enough, we need more from them.”
