Under-fire Reading boss Jaap Stam was heavily critical of his own fans after their home draw with Hull on Saturday.

Royals supporters turned on Stam as his team were very fortunate to get a point against a dominant Hull side.

Last season’s Championship play-off finalists travel to in-form Millwall on Tuesday evening - the Lions are unbeaten in three games.

Promotion hopefuls Reading have endured a poor start to the season with the club in 18th place. And Millwall will look to add to their woes at the Den.

Stam hit back at negative Royals fans who have been booing his team.

He said: “I think it’s very, very bad that they are reacting like this. If you have a season like we had last season, I don’t know if they are expecting to win the league, but I can tell you it’s not going to happen.

“So we need to be clear about that. If you are going to make noise, if you are negative, why do you need to come to the stadium?

“And whatever the problem, they can talk to me. I’m willing to come over and talk to them about that you know, but I don’t like it when fans are acting like this.

“They’re only shouting if it is not going well. We can hear them but if it’s going well we don’t hear them. Well only a small group because of course, it is not everyone.

“If it needs to be like that sorry but I’ve been used to other fans who react in a different way to a team who maybe is having a hard time scoring a goal or going forward because the opposition is playing in a certain way as well.”
