Murray on fitness, form and Wolves

25 September 2014

Striker aims for three points

Forward Glenn Murray has targeted the Royals to pick up all three points in Sunday afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship clash against high-flying Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolves currently sit third in the table having only lost once in their opening eight league games. Nevertheless, Murray is pleased with Reading’s current league form despite last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday where the hosts scored with only seven minutes to go.

He said: “Reflecting on last weekend, it was disappointing not leave Sheffield with at least a point, but you have to look at that week as a whole and six points out of nine was pretty good going.

“Hopefully we can keep that sort of league form up. Wolves on Sunday will be a great game, they are another good team in the division, but we will be going out for all three points. We will dust ourselves off and go again.

“We stood up well as a team, but Hillsborough is a difficult place to go. With 25,000 fans there, I thought we showed we are a strong, young team. We deserved something more, but as I say, it wasn’t to be.”

The loanee striker from Crystal Palace is also happy with his current form and believes he is becoming fitter having played more competitive games.

Since joining the Royals in September, the Murray has already scored two goals in three games. He was the Championship’s top scorer during the 2012/13 season, netting 30 times for the Eagles as they won promotion to the Premier League. 

He said: “I felt good Saturday afternoon, it has been a while since I played three games in a week, but I felt great and now looking forward to becoming fitter, continuing to play and enjoying myself.

“We won’t let last weekend’s result bother us and as I say, we will dust ourselves down and go again.”
