Reading midfielder looks ahead to QPR
Royals midfielder, Danny Williams, is raring to return to action against QPR on Thursday evening and break into the top six.
The 26 year old was quick to point out the Royals home record and that it is something he and the team want to preserve when Rangers visit.
“We want to be in the top six and not lose ground,” said Williams. “We are the chasing team at the moment so we want to stay unbeaten at home, the last five home games we have not lost so it’s good to keep that form running.”
“I can’t wait for the game, thankfully in this division every game is around the corner especially after you’ve lost. We look forward to the game against QPR, it’s an important game, it’s good that we play at home because we won the last game at the Madejski.”
Williams is keen for Reading to bounce back as quickly as possible after their 3-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest last weekend and sees the visit of Rangers as the perfect opportunity to do just that.
“They won at the weekend so they’re full of confidence but I don’t see any reason why we shouldn’t beat them. Obviously we got a disappointing result against Nottingham Forest, but we know what we are capable of doing and it’s going to be a good game.”
The midfielder is wary of QPR’s individual talent but feels the Royals will raise their game and have proved already this season that they can beat sides with a potent attacking threat.
“I’m sure they will be disappointed at the way they've started the season, they have good individual players and a good team but we have a good team as well, so I think we always do well against these teams that are individually good.
“They will be aware of what we are capable of doing, looking at the 5-1 against Ipswich, but we will have a lot of respect for them also. We need to do the basics right, defend as a team, play as a team and we’ll see from there.
“When you look at our squad Tshibola, Robson-Kanu and Quinn are still missing but the strength in our squad is frightening, everyone knows that they have to play well to keep their place in the team.”
