Moore on 'digging deep' for end of festive run at Fulham

Skipper looks ahead to Fulham test on New Year's Day

31 December 2019

The final Championship game of the hectic festive schedule will see the Royals make the short hop to Craven Cottage, to face high-flying Fulham on New Year's Day.

Although the demands of this time of year are strenuous, Liam Moore says the Royals are going to give everything to keep up their current run of form.

Reading go into their next game off the back of three consecutive wins and four straight clean sheets, with Moore and his teammates rallying themselves once more to face Fulham.

"We're getting through it. When you win a game, it's easier to say we struggled a little bit with our bodies," the Reading skipper said after Sunday's win against Preston.

"It's just what you've got to do. It's the same for everyone, digging deep. The management staff have been really good on managing the load, and we just keep going onto the next one.

"Tough game. It's always a tough place to go and play - we need to be on it, we need to be compact and try and do the same again as we did against Preston.

"The reverse was a difficult game - it sticks in the memory, that one. We went down to 10 early and we got the runaround a little bit.

"I think we're a very different team now. We need to put that into action on Wednesday. We just want to keep winning games, we can't keep looking ahead of ourselves.

"It's the first time for a long time that we've won three games on the bounce, I can't remember the last time we had a number of clean sheets as well, so it's all good stuff, but we need to keep it going."
