Joey relishing prospect of taking on league leaders

6 March 2017

Van den Berg previews Newcastle’s visit

Newcastle visit Madejski Stadium on Tuesday – and their away form has been pretty formidable.  The Toon have collected 41 points on the road this term… more than any other club in the four professional divisions, and six points more than they have gained at St James’ Park!

And while the league leaders are looking to keep up their push for promotion when they visit Madejski Stadium, midfielder Joey van den Berg knows that it’s an important fixture for the Royals for the same reason.

“I’m looking forward to Tuesday’s clash with Newcastle; it’s always good to play against the teams at the top of the league,” Joey said.

“They are obviously a big name in football but we are ready for it and we need to show them what we can do.

“Hopefully we can have a full house on Tuesday, it’s a massive game.  All the games that are coming up are very important for our play-off ambitions.

“We want to be up there and we need to step up our game and hopefully get the results we need.”
