Sharp hails 'brilliant' Pog

16 December 2013

Royals forward relishing partnership

Royals striker Billy Sharp has spoken highly of his partnership with Pavel Pogrebnyak, after the on loan front man scored the match winner against Huddersfield this past weekend.

Sharp now has two goals in three starts for Nigel Adkins’ men, but was keen to shift the praise onto his Russian strike partner on Saturday evening.

“I’m always going to get chances with Pav, I thought he was terrific again today,” said Sharp.

“He’s made my goal and I’m just enjoying playing at the minute. Pav is brilliant to play with – he’s played in the Premier League and you can see why, he’s a very good player.”

The 27-year-old is clearly relishing life at Madejski Stadium after injury initially disrupted his loan spell, and has vowed to concentrate purely on football matters as he approaches a hectic festive fixture list.

“I’ve managed to get three games in a row now and two goals which is a bonus, and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I want to be part of the squad and help us be successful - I want to play, help the team and score goals.”
