Brave youngster fronts upYoung midfielder Aaron Kuhl says he is developing everyday as he gets used to the rigours of men's football.
Talking to Get Reading, the 18-year-old former Academy captain refused to shy away from a mistake which in part led to Brentford's second goal in Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Griffin Park.
“It’s a massive learning curve for me, but I have to be able to bounce back from things like that," said Aaron. “I’ll watch it back and learn from it. I’ll ask the coaches for advice and ask the players for advice. I just have to realise what I have to do in those sort of situations in the future.”
Kuhl showed superb resilience to bounce back in the second half - and was involved in the Royals' goal as his trademark crossfield ball set Chris Gunter down the right flank, before Simon Cox turned home Jamie Mackie's low drive.
"We just need to get out of these little habits because they are bad habits to get into. Once we do that we will start picking up points. We do work on it and we’re not like that normally. I gave away a sloppy goal which gave them a chance to extend their lead and push on. We came out lively in the second half, scored and got on top but we couldn’t find the equaliser."
