Williams hopes the Royals can overcome a tough Birmingham side on Tuesday to secure a third straght league winRoyals midfielder Danny Williams is expecting another physical challenge against Birmingham City on Tuesday evening when Reading host the Blues in a midweek Championship encounter.
Williams, who netted a 95th minute winner at Madejski Stadium on Friday night, thinks City could present an even more difficult task than Ipswich - in particular as the USA international recalled last season’s tough contest with Birmingham in Berkshire, in which Gary Rowett's side left with the win.
“It will be a physical game against Birmingham,” admitted Williams. “I think if anything it could be a tougher game than the Ipswich one.
“We saw when we played Birmingham last year when they beat us at home 2-0 that it was one of the toughest games we had all season, so we need to be ready for it.”
After back-to-back wins in the league and three on the spin in all competitions, the 27-year-old is pleased with the improvements in the team in the opening month, and a third league win on the trot would underline that upward curve.
“We’re looking forward to the game because we have back-to-back wins now and if we can make it a third win in the league that would be amazing,” said the midfielder.
"It’s good that we win our home games and that we’re picking up points here. Away from home we’re also beginning to pick-up points too. We need to keep focused and keep working hard.
“We don’t like to look at the table too early in the season but it’s good that we’ve started brightly,” Williams continued. “You can easily get dragged in around the bottom when you lose points and don’t win games.
“We’ve worked hard over the weekend to keep the legs going so now we’re looking forward to Tuesday and we’ll see what happens.”
