"Every game is a massive game"Defender Sean Morrison says the Royals will be treating tonight's Sky Bet Championship fixture with Leeds like any other, despite the return of former manager Brian McDermott.
Morrison is proud of the fact that Nigel Adkins' men have now kept two clean sheets on the bounce, and is confident in our striking options ahead of tonight's clash with the Whites at Madejski Stadium.
"As defenders we always say that our objective is to keep a clean sheet," said Morro. "If we do that we feel like we can nick a win, unfortunately that didn't happen against Brighton.
"With the strikers we've got, there's always goals in our team - I just think it's about providing the chances for them. Hopefully we can knock some in on Wednesday.
"Are we at our best yet? I'd say we're not, but we're striving for it on the training pitch every day and we're working our hardest. We're not panicking on the inside at all."
The 22-year-old is looking forward to the return of McDermott, as well as relishing the prospect of coming up against former striker Noel Hunt, but says it'll be business as usual once the whistle goes.
"The old manager is back here on Wednesday so it will be nice to see him and come up against Noel too if he starts. I was here with Noel for almost three years so it will be nice to come up against him - it will be a hard test, he's a difficult player to play against.
"I'm sure Brian will get a good reception, but we'll get on with the game as normal. It's a normal Championship fixture, hopefully we can get another clean sheet and get some goals on the scoreboard."
"Every game is a massive game in this league and anyone can beat anyone. You can see that week in week out - it's an unpredictable league."
Sean also spoke of his pride at captaining the Royals, describing leading Reading out on the opening day of the season as his biggest honour in football.
"It's a massive honour," he said. "I love the club, I'm very happy here, we've got a great dressing room. It's the biggest honour I've had in my football career."
