Jordan aims for Blues repeat

19 March 2014

Obita confident for Saturday's game

Jordan Obita reflected positively on the Royals' recent form and says optimism must be maintained in order to beat Birmingham City this weekend.

The Royals are unbeaten throughout the month of March, but Obita wants draws turned into wins after last Saturday's stalemate with Derby County.

"I thought both teams played really well and it was quite a physical game. A point is better than a loss, and in the last three games we've had we've taken five points which is obviously better than none.


"Hopefully next week we can get a win. Like the gaffer has said, we might come out of the play-offs but go back in. But by the end of the season we've just got to make sure we're in the top six.


"Unfortunately we couldn't get the goal we wanted, and with the chances we had we should have taken one. But now we've just got to be positive and keep moving forward."

Nigel Adkins' men travel to the midlands hoping to complete the double over the Blues, after a comfortable 2-0 victory at Madejski Stadium in September.


"We've confident for every game we play," he added. "We got a good result against Birmingham last time so hopefully we can do that again.


"To get a clean sheet against Derby was good and hopefully we can keep another one on Saturday."
