'We're playing good football'

9 May 2013

McCleary thrilled by recent showings

Garath McCleary is buoyed by the Royals improvements in recent games and believes there are goals all around the team.

The winger has been part of a convalescent past few games under Nigel Adkins and said that our dominant performance in our win at Fulham typified the progression that has been made.

"I think we played fantastically well at Fulham," he said. "I think you can tell by the way we're playing now, we're going into games with real intent and we're pressing high and playing good football. Hopefully that can continue for the remaining two games going into next season.

"We're creating more chances now - I think in the last few games we've had the most possession in the game, I don't know if we've had that all season. There are goals around the team - we show that in training every day. Hopefully that can continue.

"If we're creating chances then we're always going to get the opportunity to score - especially with the strikers we've got. Me and Hal from the wings have been getting goals and even Jem popped up with one! He was buzzing to score his first Premier League goal."

And McCleary has no doubt that when last season's Barclays Premier League Champions come to Madejski Stadium on Tuesday night, the Royals will be ready.

"Training will be no different and our minds will be on Man City. We all know it will be a tough game but hopefully we can take what we've learned in the last couple of weeks and put in another good performance."
