🗣 “Recover from a big effort… and prepare for Preston!”

Pauno previews North End fixture

22 January 2021

Our win in midweek over Coventry City was the first of five consecutive fixtures against sides who have got the better of us this season.

Our next port of call is Preston North End on Sunday; a chance for payback from our 3-0 reverse at Madejski Stadium earlier this season.

And Reading boss Veljko Paunović knows it’ll be another test of character, to ensure our players are up for the next challenge.

“Coventry was a very good day for us – a good game and a good test,” he said. “So we learn, prepare, recover and move on to the next game.

“Now we focus – and I know that I am repeating myself here as it is the same each time – but we have to recover from our big effort in midweek and prepare ourselves for another tough game.

“It is an opponent that beat us in the past. So it’s our time to see if we are capable of again putting in another good performance and get a win.”
