Reading are trying to make their way out of the League One relegation zone and they have collected six points from their previous two league matches.


After defeating Wycombe Wanderers last weekend, the Royals defeated Carlisle United 5-1 at home on Tuesday night.




Reading, however, have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their two wins and Selles insisted that his side need to control games better by showing calmness on the ball.


The Royals manager stressed that they need to start the second half of the matches a lot better and he feels that his side still have a journey to make as a collective.



“I think we still have a way to go as a team, as a collective”, Selles told Reading’s media after his side beat Carlisle comfortably on Tuesday.


“I think obviously in both games we conceded the goal immediately after we scored that goal.



“And in both games, we score straight after so we can be more composed in those moments, get the ball, play a little bit, put the ball down and then have control.


“And also, we repeat not the best beginning of the second half, we can concede in that moment, we were strong in our set-plays in the second action also on the way where we defend.


“Then at the end we just have control of the game so we need to start to learn also those moments but it’s good that we already had some tools in our game.”


Now it remains to be seen if Selles’ men will be able to assert their dominance when they face Barnsley in the league next month.
