Gunter relishes busy schedule

10 October 2014

Full back on international duty

Chris Gunter says that he feels as fit as ever as the Royals defender prepares for two games of international football before his return to Hogwood Park.

Should he, as expected, represent Wales in fixtures with Bosnia-Herzegovina and Cyprus the 25-year-old will have played 17 games already this season, but despite being known for his lung-busting performances, he told a press conference he is feeling no signs of fatigue.

"It's really not a problem. I'm quite lucky, I'm one of those players for whom lots of games and travelling don't seem to bother me," said Gunter.

"I'm looking forward to going away and I'm also looking forward to another busy spell when I get back to Reading. For now you learn to just flip your focus to what's ahead and then go back and put right what happened on Saturday."

The full back admitted that last weekend's defeat to Brentford was a tough one to take, but is relishing the prospect of putting that right with back to back games with Derby and Bournemouth. 

"Of course it hurts like mad that you lose a game but you have to try and stay as level as you can. Luckily we have a staff in squad in place to do that.

"When you win you cannot get to high and carried away, and equally when you lose you can't get down. We have the likes of G (Garath McCleary), Danny Williams, Jem on their way back and they will only make us stronger. We can look to really kick on then."
