Shane in for Long haul

Long took his tally to six goals in his last five games with a brace in the 2-1 win over Burnley before assuring Royals fans that he has no plans to leave during this month's transfer window.

He told the Reading Evening Post: "There's always rumours going around and there were a lot in the summer as well.

"I'm enjoying my football here at Reading at the moment and I know this team is destined for big things and I want to be a part of that. I just have to concentrate on my own game and what will be will be.

"These things happen if you're scoring goals, but I'm just enjoying my football. I want to be part of a good Reading side right now."
