Reading beat Charlton Athletic on penalties to progress into the next round of the Bristol Street Motors Trophy.

Read immediate reaction from Ruben Selles below.

Selles on the match

"The first half was slow for both teams and full of mistakes, we made one for the goal that should not happen. We also missed one clear situation. The second half we started to move the bench and after the substitution, we were very dynamic at the front. We equalised and can even score a second one, we had a couple of situations in behind. In the penalty shooting, the team showed that it was mature enough and they were all very composed. I’m very happy for them.

Selles on penalty taking and learning from Ipswich Town defeat

"We talked about it when it happened, some players like Caylan Vickers where it was the first time, they had taken a penalty in a professional stadium with a crowd, and we all learnt about those situations. I think they showed today that they learned from that and were very strong in the way they put the penalties in the net. We take the victory and look forward to the next round.

Selles on bouncing back

"After the result on Sunday, it was a good way to come back and get into the next round. It’s good also for the team to get it, a lot of players came and put in a good performance. It’s always good for the team and dressing room to keep going.

Selles on the squad

"There were some good individual performances. Some need to be better, but it is always like that in a game. I think some players showed that they are capable of good things, and I am happy for them. Sometimes, especially with young players, they have ups and downs during the season, and you need to respect that. It is natural with every player when they break through, and we have boys in that situation.

Selles on injuries

"We managed the minutes well today. Some of the players in contention like Andy Yiadom, needed some days to recover his ankle but he was fully training yesterday and tomorrow. Everyone will be fresh, and we’ll be ready to go again.

"Tom [McIntyre] is still missing but he is a couple of weeks. We had the doubt of Jeriel Dorsett, he had a small problem in his knee, and we are not sure if he will arrive for the Saturday game, but definitely he should be back for the midweek game."
