Gorkss: We go again

10 December 2013

Defender's resolve ahead of Huddersfield

Defender Kaspars Gorkss says the Royals will be ready to go for three points on Saturday when Nigel Adkins' men travel to Huddersfield.

The Latvian skipper lamented two soft first half goals which changed the complexion of our game with Bournemouth last weekend, but praised the visitors for their fearless approach.

"It's always tough when you lose at home," admitted Kaspars. "We came from two wins - we played well enough and kept the ball well, but goals change games. In the first half I think they had two shots on goal and scored two goals, and we're chasing the game.

"We controlled the game well enough but didn't create enough. We just couldn't get that goal to get us going, if we had scored a bit earlier then it would have been a completely different game. But fair play to Bournemouth, they played well and now we need to do it the hard way at Huddersfield."

Ahead of this Saturday's fixture at the John Smith's Stadium, Gorkss said that the Royals go into each and every game gunning for three points - regardless of the opposition and venue.

"We go again next week - there's no time to sulk," the central defender firmly added.

"Our objectives do not change - we try to win every game we go into to. It doesn't matter who it's against. We need to learn from our mistakes from Bournemouth and try not to repeat them in the future."
