Roy looking to capitalise on ‘good vibe’

23 September 2016

Beerens wants Reading to draw on confidence from within the dressing room

Reading winger Roy Beerens is hoping the Royals can capitalise on the positive atmosphere inside the dressing room after the team’s good run of form against Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon.

The Dutchman says the Reading squad have plenty of respect for the Terriers and the job they have done so far this season, but will be going into to the match looking to continue their dominant possession football to try and take all three points. 

“There is a good vibe in the dressing room, especially after the last two games,” said Beerens. “There is a very good feeling. 

“There is a confidence about the way we want to play and the style that we want to play, everyone is really behind it and so far it is succeeding. For us now it is important we are getting good results and hopefully we can get three points this weekend at home to climb further up the table.

“Huddersfield are a good team and a good club,” he continued. “They have played well so far this season, and we will have to play really well to beat them at home. We will try to play our football like we do in every game and will continue with our style of play.”

Roy was one of 11 summer arrivals at the club, and the winger feels the new players have bought an increased hunger to the side, with a real determination to compete with the top clubs in the division.

“There are a lot of new players at this club and we have all come here to have success,” said the 28-year-old. “We’ve shown against some of the better sides in this league that we can compete and we can win, everyone has a lot of confidence and we will fight to win every battle in every game.

“Personally I feel quite good, I’m enjoying it as a winger I feel I’m doing quite a good job. The way that we play makes it nice to play on the wing and gives you the opportunity to get in to 1v1 situations.

“I’d like to score a few more goals and get a few more assists but I’m close to doing that in a lot of games so far.

“I’ll continue to put my energy into the game and help the team,” Roy continued. “For me it doesn’t matter who gets the goal or the assist as long as after the game the manager says to me ‘Roy you’ve done a good job’ then I’m happy.”
