Reading manager Nigel Adkins was full of praise for young goalkeeper Alex McCarthy after his heroics helped preserve a point for the Royals in Saturday's goalless draw with Liverpool.
"All the headlines will be about Alex McCarthy," Adkins said.
"He's put in a fantastic display even though he's been out for a while.
"We have some exceptional keepers here at Reading and a really good goalkeeping coach.
"I'm really pleased with the players, their attitude and application.
"We've kept a clean sheet and it's fair to say Alex has pulled off some world-class saves. Alex will receive the headlines but I'm pleased with all the players today."
The Premier League's basement side were outclassed for most of the match and their failure to win has nudged them closer to relegation, but Birkenhead-born Adkins refused to be despondent.
He said: "We won't wait for relegation. We'll just keep working on the training ground and take each game as it comes," Adkins said.
"The atmosphere in the stadium was really good, the supporters got behind the players and the team gave the fans something to cheer so there's a lot of positivity around the place."
