Reading 0-0 Liverpool: Nigel Adkins praises 'outstanding' Alex McCarthy

Reading boss Nigel Adkins describes the performance of his goalkeeper Alex McCarthy as "outstanding" after he made a string of saves to deny Liverpool in a 0-0 draw.

The result ends the Royals' club record run of eight successive defeats in all competitions and Adkins is delighted with his players' "attitude and application".

Despite the point, they remain bottom of the Premier League table with just five games remaining.
