Pardew happy with point
Reading boss Alan Pardew said his team played well against Bury
Pardew wants Reading to go on another winning run
Reading manager Alan Pardew said he was delighted with his team's performance against Bury even though the Royals winning run came to an end.

Reading had won seven straight matches prior to the 1-1 draw with the Shakers and are now unbeaten in nine games.

A winning run has come to an end and full credit to the players for what they achieved

"I thought we looked like a top of the table team," Pardew told the club's official website.

"Bury had to defend with their lives for a 1-1 draw and the referee helped them at times."

The manager felt the result illustrated the way his team have improved this season.

"A winning run has come to an end and full credit to the players for what they achieved. Nine months ago we would have been beaten here."

Pardew was particularly pleased with the performance of Anthony Rougier.

"He's almost becoming a Cantona sort of figure for us, everything's coming off him.

"And as long as Nicky Forster is scoring and others are chipping in, he doesn't need to score," said Pardew of the striker who has not managed a goal since December 2000.
