Kuhl: "a tremendous experience"

Reading's young star Aaron Kuhl has described his burst into the first team as a "tremendous experience" after starting the last three games for the Royals.

After playing his part in our most recent fixture, a 1-0 win at Middlesbrough, Kuhl hopes to be involved in this Saturday's home game with Fulham - a club with some young players that the 18-year-old is familiar with.

Kuhl captained the under-18s in their run to the semi-final of the FA Youth Cup last season, where they were narrowly beaten by the Cottagers - who had 2014/15 first team squad members Moussa Dembele and Patrick Roberts shine over the two legs.

"It's crazy that literally five months ago, I was playing against Fulham in the Youth Cup," he told Reading FC Player. "Now I could be playing against some of the players from the semi-final this Saturday. I'm sure it will be two young sides, and hopefully we can do the better on them.

"It's good to play in front of the fans that come and support us, and cheer us on. It's a tremendous experience, and I just want keep it going and enjoy the atmospheres."

Kuhl hopes the side can continue the form shown just before the international break begun in both the Sky Bet Championship and Capital One Cup, as a hectic set of fixtures comes our way.

"It's great to get everyone back together after the international break. We've got a tough period coming up now, so we want to keep our momentum going and win our league and cup games.

"The lads really started to click together and started to show the character and ability that we've got. We've shown we can go away to sides like Middlesbrough and get three points - hopefully we can keep pushing up table.

"It was a big learning experience for me to play against the likes of Adam Clayton. They're strong, physical players and I learned from that experience, now I want to get better and better."
