Our season began in earnest in midweek against Gillingham with a 2-0 win in the Carabao Cup – and now Liam Kelly, who netted twice against the Gills, hopes that the Royals can get the points tally ticking over in the Sky Bet Championship.
At the back end of last season, our last Madejski Stadium fixture was a 1-0 second-leg play-off triumph against Fulham to send us to Wembley… they are our first visitors in our new league campaign, on a brand new playing surface.
“We know how good Fulham are – we played them a lot last year, and of course the last time we played them was one of the best nights here all season,” Kelly said.
“We just want to try and start the season well and hopefully we can do that by beating Fulham on Saturday.
“We know how we want to play – and now the pitch out there is second to none.
“So now that everyone knows how good it is and everyone is getting used to it, we can get the ball down and play our stuff. “
