Morro awaits "great game"

14 August 2013

Defender previews Watford clash

Sean Morrison is expecting another fantastic game on Saturday when Watford make the 46-mile journey to Madejski Stadium.

Royals supporters have seen Nigel Adkins' men pick up a positive four points from two very entertaining games, and Morro is anticipating more of the same against Gianfranco Zola's side.

They go into the game with the Hornets after a well-earned point away at promotion candidates Bolton Wanderers, a game the big defender felt we could have won.

"We were unlucky not to come away with all three points after the second half," Sean reflected. "We started well again but just switched off for the goal, and then made a good reaction.

"We could have won it in the end - their 'keeper made some top class saves from Pearcey, Alfie and myself. But in hindsight it was a really good point - not many teams will go to the Reebok and get anything.

"Training has been good this week, the international boys will be back in for the Thursday and Friday sessions which are the most important, and we'll get our shape right for what will be a tough game against Watford."

Tickets have been selling well for Saturday's game, and Morro says the fans will be vital as the Royals strive for three points and their first clean sheet of the season.

"It's going to be a really good game, I'm sure. It will be hard to break each other down and might just be a battle of the wits. I think whoever can keep a clean sheet will win the game, so fingers crossed we can get our first of the season.

"Sometimes people can underestimate the importance of the fans. When you're on the pitch they can just give you that lift - and it makes all the difference with that extra 10%.

"Personally, it gives me a boost when you hear your name called out by the fans and I'm sure it does for the whole team. Hopefully we can get a packed crowd here on Saturday, and they can help us get over the line."
