Jose Gomes gives honest verdict on what Reading can take from heavy defeat

Published

on

Jose Gomes has stated that Reading can take positives despite the devastating 4-1 defeat at home to Fulham.

The Royals were booed off the pitch last night, as Fulham ran riot at the Madejski scoring three goals in the first half an hour of the game.

It was Reading’s fourth defeat in five league games and it leaves them looking over their shoulder as they sit just one spot outside the relegation zone.

The Royals face Bristol City on Saturday, in what will be another tough test for Gomes and his side. The Portuguese boss stated that they have to find more consistency over the 90 minutes.

Speaking to readingfc.co.uk, Gomes said: “It is with this togetherness, this spirit and character that we can look to the future. Sometimes, even when we lose we can catch positive things.

“After the game, losing at home like we did today, the only thing to do was to catch the spirit that they showed with both hands.

“We need more consistency and to play the way that we want to for 90 minutes, and we will do it. Right now, we need to keep the spirit that we showed in the second half.”

The Verdict

Reading certainly need some spirit and that is what Gomes is calling for the Royals to show in the future. Fixtures don’t get any easier for his side and they’ll be hoping that they can surprise a few of the clubs near the the top of the table.

It’s a big few weeks for the boss and he’s adamant that results will come in the near future, but with games against Bristol City, Nottingham Forest and Preston coming up it’s going to be very tough for Reading.

It’s too early to make any drastic decisions about his future, but if they continue to play like they have done after the money that they’ve spent then the owners will have no choice but to relieve Gomes of his duties.

Will Reading be relegated this season?
