Guthrie: In a good place

23 January 2013

Midfielder on finding form for the Royals

Danny Guthrie feels he's getting stronger in every game he plays, following the Royals' 2-1 win at Newcastle last Saturday.

The 25-year-old midfielder has featured in our last seven matches in all competitions, playing a part in the side's recent improved form - which Danny felt that he owed.

Speaking after the win at St James' Park, Guthrie said, "I'm getting stronger in each game, and I got stronger as the game went on (at Newcastle). It's the same for anyone - if you get a run of games you get physically sharper and I feel good at the moment and in a good place.

"I'm really enjoying it and whatever has gone on in the past is clearly out of the window. I felt like I owed everyone not just a performance, but a bit of form to get us out of the hole we were in. I feel like I'm slowly doing that.

"It's always nice to get one over your old club, but whoever we get three points off it's brilliant. To put back-to-back wins together in this league is tough - especially in the position we're in. It's massive to win. We're strong at home but hadn't picked up a win away from home so it was a big three points for us."

Buoyed by the strength of the squad, Danny hopes that Reading's form since the turn of the year is just the start of a successful run.  

"I'm delighted to play but it's all about the team and the squad as you can see," he added. "We've got Alfie coming off the bench to score and he's won us the game. It's going to be an interesting couple of months.

"I was told that this club always gets stronger after Christmas and we've certainly done that. This is just the start of a run of games we need to put together. By no means we're out of trouble, but we're just looking at it game by game and it's a nice position that we've put ourselves in.
