🗯 Skipper discusses a ‘massive block of games’, and our next opponents Derby

Moore on the Royals’ final seven

3 April 2021

Most teams in the table would gladly trade places with Reading – as we gear up to game number 40, we still have that top-six spot in our sights.

There was disappointment at not getting a couple more points on the board on Good Friday in Barnsley… the next opportunity comes on Easter Monday at home against Derby County.

It’ll be a rollercoaster, right until the end. And captain Liam Moore is relishing what lies again.

“If you had given me this at the start of the season – to be captain of Reading in this position – I would have snapped your hand off,” the skipper said.

“We are here for a reason and need to capitalise on it.

“We’ve got seven huge, huge games to go. Me and the other senior boys need to step up. And so do the youth.

“This is a massive block of games for the club, and we need to keep going.


“Onto Derby. It’s two lost against Barnsley, not one gained. But if we can back it up with a win then it’s a decent return over Easter. It’s game by game now – let’s tick them off.

“Their form means absolutely nothing. The Championship is one of the most competitive leagues in the world and every team can beat every team.

“It doesn’t matter what style teams play in, they’ve all got their threats. We’ll be ready for that on Monday.”
