"We know the work which we’re putting in is all going to come together"

Tyler Blackett confident of on-field result improvement in coming matches

27 September 2019

Tyler Blackett says the Royals are relishing the next opportunity for points, as they get back to league action against high-flying Swansea City at the weekend.

Steve Cooper's Swans will be a stern test at the Liberty Stadium, currently sitting 2nd in the early Championship table having lost just once in their first eight league matches so far.

Blackett made his first start of the season in midweek against Wolves in the Carabao Cup, having been sidelined for the campaign so far through injury.

With a second lengthy away journey in a matter of days awaiting Reading, Blackett has urged the team to set their focus on the weekend's outing against the Swans.

“We’re back on the road again," the defender said. "It’s a quick turnaround but, as always in football, there’s always that next chance, that next opportunity. It’s about putting our minds right and focussing on that now.

“It was a long game against Wolves, but in general I’m feeling good, feeling fit and happy to help the team.

“I’m always going to do my best and try and put myself on the pitch, but it’s down to the manager and wherever he wants to play me is fine.

“It’s a tough test. We all know against Swansea that they’re going to move the ball; they’re going to try and keep possession and play well too.

“We’ve got to try and match that, but also try and put our strengths into the game. We’ve got to take them all the way.

“We’ve got to focus on ourselves now and try to do the best we can. We’re working in the right direction, results haven’t gone our way of late, but we know the work which we’re putting in is all going to come together.”
