Andy Rinomhota revealed he and his team have been enjoying an important phase of rest and recovery during the international break, as attention turns to resuming the good form the Royals had build before the interlude.

Apart from those away on international duty, the Royals were treated to a rare few days off after the Luton Town game.

Some visited family and friends, some went away but all focused on rest and recuperation. The squad have now resumed full training though and focus turns to Saturday 23rd November and a trip to in-form Brentford.

"It was needed after the couple games we had," Andy said of the recent period of rest. "But thankfully we got good results in those games so we could go away happy with what we have done.

"You still want Brentford in the back of your mind, but not to focus on it too early was important. It was good to get two or three days off and recover but now we are back in training and getting ready for the upcoming game.

"We've gone into previous international breaks off the back of not so good results, so it was nice to go away with back-to-back wins, which we haven’t done for a while.

"Positivity is high and we've all come back into training focused and ready to get ready for the next game.

"Personally, I didn’t get up too much really, just focused on recovery and relaxing. The days go quickly even if you’re sitting around. But it’s good to come back in feeling fresh and putting that work into training."


Last year's Player of the Season shone bright in our 3-0 win over Luton Town and was frank about the control and resilience the team demonstrated.

"The two home wins were similar games where we dominated the first half and managed to get two goals up," Andy stated.

"With Millwall we didn’t manage to get that third goal to kill the game off, whereas we did against Luton which made it a lot easier for us. Obviously, G Mac getting the third goal capped it off...everyone is delighted for him. He brings a lot to the team."
