Danny Swanson scored arguably the goal of the season so far in an emphatic win over Reading.

Peterborough United inflicted Reading's worst defeat for 14 years as Darren Ferguson's men chalked up a 6-0 home victory, taking their goal tally to 11 in just two fixtures.

Danny Swanson scored the pick of the goals in a high class display and admitted afterwards that competition for places is so strong that outstanding individual displays are required to remain in the starting line-up.

'We play 11v11 in training on Fridays and the standard is frightening, there are players that can't get in those sides at training and they are unbelievable players so we know that if we get a chance in the side we have to try and take it.

'I was obviously very pleased to score. I remember collecting the ball from Bobby and just having a run. I didn't think I would score when I got the ball, but I just tried to run and commit a few defenders. I think Britt got up with me and made a great run which dragged the defender away.

'Fortunately for me, when I checked back I was able to get it past the keeper and it is up there with one of the best goals I have scored. I really enjoyed the game, we played some great stuff,' Swanson said.

Meanwhile, skipper Tommy Rowe admitted afterwards that the memory of a 6-0 defeat at the Madjeski Stadium at the back end of the club's ill-fated first stint at Championship football was in his mind.

'I thought about that game as the goals were going in if I am honest. I was in the side that day and it was a horrible experience to be involved in a 6-0 win was a great feeling. The lads were first class,' Rowe added.
