Paul Dickov Looks Ahead To Reading

Rovers Player spoke to the Paul ahead of Rovers trip to Reading.

"Reading are going to be a tough side to play but seems that every week we are playing a promotion challenger but this allows us to go there without any pressure on us because nobody will expect us to get anything out of the game as against Leicester. 

"It will allow us a bit of freedom and the only pressure we have is what we put on ourselves to perform well. We know its going to be a tough game with lots of good players who played in the Premier League last season and Nigel (Adkins) is a manager who I have a lot of respect for. They have a good home record but as I have said it will be no tougher than going to Wigan or Watford and we did all right there. This is why we want to be at this level because you get chance to play big clubs and top players every week.

"I know people will talk about Billy Sharp but they have a lot of good players not just him. We know whatever team Nigel puts out we will have to be at our best defensivly and what pleases me over the past few weeks is that we have shown two sides to our game. If we want to get the ball down and play we can compete and if we need to dig in like against Leicester and Sheffield Wednesday we can put our bodies in the way and keep a clean sheet. This is a good mix to have in your squad and we will need this on Saturday."
