Jobi want to pay the penalty

Reading winger Jobi McAnuff has revealed that the Royals squad are all battling to replace departed Gylfi Sigurdsson as the side's dead-ball expert.Sigurdsson took all penalties and free-kicks for Brian McDermott's men before leaving to join Hoffenheim for a club record fee on transfer deadline day and his absence has triggered competition at the Madejski Stadium.He said: "There was some unofficial penalty practising going on in training so there is a bit of a battle on for that one."Brian Howard has nominated himself but I need to get more goals so I'm in the running."Shane Long will fancy himself too so we will have to wait and see."It was a great figure for the club and for Gylfi to go and further his career in a league that is thriving at the moment is good for everybody so best wishes to him."
