Reading must keep their heads up and stick together as they head into Sunday's crucial relegation six-pointer with Derby.
That's the view of Reading winger Stephen Hunt as the Royals continue to find life difficult in their second season in the top flight.
They recorded their worst defeat so far last week - a 7-4 thrashing by Portsmouth - and Hunt believes they need to pull together to climb out of their adversity.
The Republic of Ireland midfielder told the Reading Chronicle: "It's a big game for us and we think we can win it. Then again, I bet Derby County will be thinking the same after our last result.
"We've got to keep our heads up and stick together. I've seen this before when teams down the bottom were quick to point the finger at each other last season.
"We can't allow ourselves to fall into that trap."
