Gunter: A great chance

18 October 2013

Defender on taking maximum points

Full back Chris Gunter says the Royals will be aiming for maximum points between now and the next international break.

Our defender returned to Berkshire after a successful trip away with Wales which saw Gunter and Hal Robson-Kanu help the Dragons beat Macedonia and draw away at Brussels - a game which saw Chris become the youngster ever Welshman to reach 50 appearances.

Due to injuries, Gunter filled in at centre back for both of their games - but despite a couple of solid performances and results, the 24-year-old says he has no plans on making it a permanent position for the Royals.

"No I think we'll leave that to Pearcey, Kaspars and Morro! We've got some good centre backs at the club and some top players in all positions," he said.

"It was a good trip - to pick up four points was a really good achievement, especially drawing with a side like Belgium away from home - so it was very pleasing."

Gunter is delighted that the Royals have a home fixture for the first time in three weeks, and says it's important that we do well in this next run of fixtures.

“We’ve got four games between now and the next November break, and three of them are at home, so it’s a great chance for us. We had a couple of away trips before the international break so it’ll be nice to get back home in front of our own fans and try and take maximum points.

"Up until the Burnley game we were on a great run, so it’s important to start again now and do really well in the next block of games."

A full, exclusive interview with Chris will be in our official matchday programme 'The Royal' this Saturday.
