Tiago keen to kick on in the cup

Defender previews Hillsborough trip

23 January 2018

Reading defender Tiago Ilori is keen for the victory on Friday night at Hillsborough… not just because it’s a chance to get to round five of the FA Cup.

More pertinently, it offers the team a chance to get back to winning ways ahead of next week’s rearranged game against Burton Albion in the Championship.

“It’s another game that we want to win,” said Ilori.  “I don’t look at it as a cup game – I just look at it as a game that we want to win.

“Whichever way you look at it, it’s a chance to get some momentum when we come back into league action – we want to get back to it with a win in Sheffield.

“These are the sorts of games we enjoy.  As a footballer you like to go to places with an atmosphere; it gives you that motivation, more than you naturally have. 

“We’ll go into every game trying to do our best to get the result we want.”
