Reading midfielder Jay Tabb reckons he is happy with life on the bench as long as his team-mates maintain their winning form.
The diminutive playmaker has been a spectator for the last five games during which the Royals have garnered five wins and moved up to third in the league.
Brian McDermott's side are now just four points off the automatic promotion places and Tabb is coming to the realisation he may now be out of the team for a while, due to the form of Mikele Leigertwood and Jem Karacan.
"They've been playing really great so I've got no arguments really," he said.
"The team's been really playing, five wins on the bounce and five clean sheets so there's no frustration for me.
"It's different if you're in mid-table or down the bottom, you're kind of hoping that something will get you into the team but at the moment, in an ideal world, I probably won't get a game between now and end of the season because we're winning every week.
"The gaffer knows I'm fit and ready if he needs me, but hopefully Jem and Ledge keep doing well and if they do then I'll be sitting on the bench."
