How HRK has influenced our cup run

16 February 2015

HRK's role in 4 out of 5 FA Cup goals

Hal Robson-Kanu has had a hand in four out of Reading's five FA Cup goals so far this season.

Hal scored with a very good finish at Derby on Saturday, rounding off a super team move involving Simon Cox, Danny Williams and Stephen Kelly.

He then put Yakubu through with a perfectly-weighted pass as the frontman sealed the win with his first Reading goal.

In the previous round Hal came off the bench to score the winner at Cardiff, and he also set up Nick Blackman's goal at Huddersfield in the third round.

Our cup run has of course been a team effort, and Welsh international Robson-Kanu can be happy with his own contribution.

Speaking to Reading FC Player after the game, boss Steve Clarke said, "I thought Hal was good.

"Obviously he wasn't happy not playing on Tuesday night but I make those changes for a reason. He was fresh, put in a big shift and did great.

"He scored the first one and made the second one with a super pass.

"Yakubu scored with a super finish, but as well as him there's a lot of players that need a mention.

"It was a really team performance and you don't do anything individually, you do it as a team."
