LIAM Rosenior today admitted that his parent club Reading should have been awarded a penalty in Saturday's 1-1 Championship draw at the Madejski Stadium.

The 25-year-old right back played his part as Ipswich Town stretched their unbeaten run to five games to move off the foot of the table.

He is officially on loan at Ipswich until the end of the season, but has confirmed that he has no intention of going back to Reading where his current contract ends in June.

Referring to Alan Quinn's rather reckless challenge that sent Shane Long tumbling, Rosenior said: “We were lucky Reading did not get a penalty.

“But how many times have we suffered this season, and we deserved a bit of luck.

“Reading struck the underside of our bar soon after that incident and it is moments like that which decide who wins and who draws. The good fortune went our way on Saturday.”

And reflecting on the game in general, Rosenior added: “We're happy with a point.

“Reading have good players and they put us under some pressure, but we defended well and are bedding in well at the back.

“It wasn't the clean sheet we hoped for, but we are sure they will come.”
