Reading midfielder Sam Hutchinson said there were 'many problems' after the Royals threw away a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 at Shrewsbury Town.

Leading 2-1 going into stoppage time, Reading conceded in the 92nd and 96th minute to make it a 20th winless away match.

Speaking to BBC Berkshire post-match, Hutchinson was strong with his words.

"I am angry," he said. " We don’t go out there to lose. There is stuff going on at the club that not everyone is privy to and that everyone doesn’t see on a daily basis. Everyone is trying and we are going against the tide, that is life. When you come out here and everyone wants to slate you, it is difficult to take.

"We don’t help ourselves. We are inexperienced as a team and naive. I lost my runner for Dunkley, but it is excuses. We can make excuses all we want, we’re not good enough a team or a club. Anger comes from everyone. You’re angry, I’m angry, fans are angry. You can apologise until you’re blue on the face and can go in the changing room and speak rubbish, but it doesn’t help. You have to get on the pitch with some experience and know-how and do the basics and win ugly. We aren’t doing it and we get punished week in and week-out.

Pressed further on his views, the former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder added: "Regardless of performance, I don’t think there’s anyone that doesn’t give 100 per cent. That says that there is not quality, we might not be doing the right things or something else is going on. That is the difficult thing to take when you are doing as best you can with the messages you’re being given and still losing.

" There are so many problems at this club. everyone is trying to do their best, us, the fans, the staff, the management. Everyone is trying their best and sometimes you have to hold your hands up and say it’s not good enough."
