💬 Moore | “It’s a process… we’re building foundations”

Skipper preview Watford meeting this weekend

2 October 2020

“When you get three wins out of three, you’ve got to be buzzing in a tough league like the Championship,” said the Royals skipper Liam Moore. “But when it comes to 5pm on a Saturday, and all the work that you’ve done from Monday to Friday pays off, we’re not so surprised.

“When you get three wins out of three, you’ve got to be buzzing in a tough league like the Championship,” said the Royals skipper Liam Moore. “But when it comes to 5pm on a Saturday, and all the work that you’ve done from Monday to Friday pays off, we’re not so surprised.

“We need to continue that now; it’s a process. We’ve been working very hard to win each game, and long may that continue.

“Spirits are always good when you’re winning games. We’re building foundations now that will enable us to kick on, even when things aren’t going so well. It is a positive place to be.

“Watford will be our toughest test yet. We’ll prepare as we have been for each game, and then on Saturday it’s about putting those bits together and hopefully getting another three points on the board.

“They are incredibly strong. Just look at their last fixture – it was a Premier League bench and some great talent on the pitch. So it’s about trying to nullify that, same as every game, respecting them… but also respecting our process and if we stand up and do what we can on Saturday, it should be a great spectacle and hopefully one we’ll get three points from.

“If we can go into the break with four wins from four, that would be the perfect start. We’re not going to get ahead of ourselves though; it’s a long season.”

The captain has been enjoying his time under new manager Veljko Paunović too. Just one goal conceded in three games en route to nine points… and an infectious attitude from the boss.

“It’s been very good, very positive,” Moore reflected on the new manager’s impact. “He’s a very positive guy. He loves football – it sounds obviously, but he honestly does, with a passion. He’s got clips on absolutely everything and he’s there to help.

“He has non-negotiables – I’m repeating myself, but he’s keen on that. That is being instilled into the players as well.

“Training has been good and we’re progressing – the results say so, but on the training pitch as well there have been improvements made, day-in day-out.”
