Méïté | "It's very important for us to win"

Attacker stresses need for points ahead of Wigan clash

29 November 2019

Yakou Méïté stressed the importance of getting more points on the board, as the Royals look ahead to their encounter with Wigan Athletic this weekend.

The Royals forward has good memories of playing the Latics, after netting a crucial winner deep in added time when the two sides met at Madejski Stadium back in March.

With the teams separated by just two points in the Championship table at the moment, Méïté spoke of the need to take advantage and bring all three points back to Berkshire on Saturday night.

"We know all the games in the Championship are tough, and it's not the same. Last year, it was a good feeling, but it's another story this year.

"We hope we can win this game because it's very important for us to win after two losses. 

"The most important thing is the three points, and we need to go there for a win.

"Our mentality is strong. We don't think about where we are in the table at the moment, we just think about winning games - that is the most important thing at the moment, then we'll see where we are in the table later."
