Alfie's Rallying Cry
Adam Le Fondre has vowed that the Royals will give it their all for a crunch clash with Burnley this weekend.
A win will guarantee Nigel Adkins’ side a play-off spot and the striker, who has 15 goals to his name this season, wants to hit the ground running.
“This is the last game of the season, there’s a lot riding on it and we have to go out there all guns blazing and take all three points,” said the 27-year-old.
“It’s all about us. If we get the result we won’t need to look over our shoulders. I’m guessing there will be some nerves around the place but people deal with it in different ways. Personally I don’t really feel pressure. I tasted the Premier League last season and it was incredible; from where I’ve come from to play there is a dream, something I relish and thrive on. I’m striving to get back there.”
Sean Dyche’s Clarets may have already secured their place in the top flight, but Le Fondre is certainly not expecting an easy ride.
“Burnley showed against Ipswich that they aren’t going to slack off. I watched the first 20 minutes of that game and it didn’t look like they were on holiday then. They’ve got the sort of manager that won’t allow too many days off. It is fully in our hands, that’s all we can ask for. I want to keep scoring goals but more importantly I want to win games. I would trade all my goals in now for a promotion and take that straight away.”
