José | “Recover and prepare”

Manager on our Loftus Road trip

28 December 2018

Reading boss José Gomes joined the club right in the thick of a busy winter schedule – and much like his first game in charge, preparations for this weekend’s game away at Queens Park Rangers relies on good recovery from the last game and putting plans in place for the next match.

There is little time to do much intense work at the training ground.  But he is sure that things will be in place when we kick off against Rangers this Saturday.

“It’s the same thing as the last game – recover and prepare the changes,” Gomes said.  “We have three days in which to prepare for the game and recover the players.

“We have no time to cry after losing at Millwall.  We are going with all the strength and energy that we have into the next game against Queens Park Rangers.

“We are working to be better every day.  To play better football, to create more opportunities.  That is our mission.

“Right now, we are thinking in terms of short-term goals, which is to get ready for the game and try to win.

“Like all the matches, there’s three points available on Saturday.  And the team which plays better, creates more situations, plays better football and has more chances is more likely to win.  Hopefully that will be us.”
