Coppell warning for Leroy

Steve Coppell has told Leroy Lita that he needs to find his scoring boots or be frozen out.

Lita has only scored once this season and found himself omitted from the squad against Arsenal with Coppell selecting Kitson and Doyle as his first choice strike pairing.

"Leroy hasn't been playing well. I need Leroy to be on the end of things, scoring goals," he told Reading World.

"We're all judged on results - if I don't get results I'm out. It's the same for strikers - it's a competitive situation."
