"The fans are building a really strong bond"

Royals boss delighted with fan backing and connection with his players

15 April 2019

In times of trouble, you get to know who your friends are. And Royals supporters have come together and risen to the challenge to support the players through a difficult period on the pitch. It's not over, there are 'four more battles' to fight and we will need you all of the way - at home and on the road.

"I am sure that the support of our fans is very important," manager José Gomes said after our win over Brentford on Saturday.

"Since we played against Swansea City on New Year’s Day, we have earned two draws and five wins here at Madejski Stadium - and just one defeat against Leeds.

"These results are also a result of the support of our fans. They are building a fantastic atmosphere in the stadium. And I am really proud to be manager of this club.

"I think our fans are building a really strong bond. In our stadium - I don’t know what others feel and I have only just arrived in England - but I can really feel the support of our fans during the match.


"They have been really amazing. And this good atmosphere has been so important for us.

"In the moment we are in trouble, near the bottom of the table, we needed that support. And with this support it’s like an extra player for us."

We are back at home on Easter Monday to face play-off hopefuls West Bromwich Albion at the Madejski. 

Back the boys and make some noise! Thank you for your support.
