After two consecutive draws in the league, Böðvarsson wants to go one better as Barnsley descend on RG2 on Tuesday night.

Having recently returned from injury, the Iceland international is hoping to make a larger impact on proceedings in the upcoming games, with a couple of appearances from the bench as he regains match fitness.

On the threat of Barnsley, he said: “We’re going for a win. It’s going to be a tough team to play against, but we feel in the last couple of games that we are playing well.

“At Bolton we conceded two cheap goals but we came back, on Saturday we were playing well but not getting the goals.

“After the game we had a talk and we told ourselves we need to keep focussed, not overthink the things that we’re doing, eventually it will come and I’m positive it will be on Tuesday.

“The most important thing is that we stay positive, it’s so easy to start pointing fingers and nobody’s doing that. We’re really focussed on each other and helping each other out, and eventually it will calm.”

Having had teams try and frustrate the Royals at Madejski Stadium in recent weeks by playing on the counter-attack, Böðvarsson says he puts pressure on himself to try even harder to break the opposition defences down.

“Teams are going to park the bus, especially at home," he added. "It’s not going to be a lot of clear, open chances so you have to take those few chances you get.

“That’s a part of the game, and that’s a pressure that I put on myself as well."
