Reading marksman George Puscas has given an insight into how he has been deployed for the Royals so far this season in a Q&A on his Instagram Story.
Football in England and across most of the world has been suspended until the end of April due to recent events and players are having to train from their homes, leaving them with plenty of free time.
To help fill that void, Puscas took to social media and invited questions from fans with many Reading fans getting in touch.
One of the questions was to do with his role as a lone striker this season, with the Romanian, asked if he enjoys playing it with many supporters criticising Bowen for continuing to use him in this :

The 23-year-old made the move to Reading in the summer from Inter Milan, going on to score 11 goals in 33 appearances for his new side, becoming one of Mark Bowen’s most important weapons.
Prior to the league’s suspension, the Royals were sat in 14th place with nine points between them and the relegation zone and an eight-point gap between themselves and the play-off places.
They are perhaps, therefore, one of the sides least affected by the shutdown of games although you can bet that the likes of Puscas will still be eager to see out the campaign and score as many goals as possible.
I don’t think any striker truly worth his salt would say no to this question.
Perhaps Puscas would suit playing with a partner better but at the same time he has not done too badly on his own. Scoring 11 goals for a side sat in the bottom half of the table whilst playing as a lone striker is no mean feet and something he should be applauded for.
Let’s not forget that he is still only 23 so likely has a lot of improvement to come.
