Arveladze looks ahead to Reading

22 April 2022

Shota Arveladze is hopeful of a complete performance from his side when Reading visit the MKM Stadium.

After ending a run of six successive home defeats against Cardiff City on Good Friday, City will be determined to secure back-to-back wins in front of the home faithful for the first time since January.

Paul Ince’s Royals can secure their safety in the Championship with a win against the Tigers, having only lost once in their last seven games.

Although the Tigers saw their six-game unbeaten run away from home come to an end against Millwall on Easter Monday, Arveladze says there are a lot of positives to take from recent performances.

“We want to show our own supporters that we love to play football, especially at home,” said Arveladze.

“When they come and support us, we always want to give them the maximum we can.

“It’s all about the game we want to find. We’ve had (periods during) the last six or seven games, but not for the entire game.

“We’ve had some golden times. We want to see this for (the entire) 90 minutes, so we’re working on that.”

The Royals edged closer to securing their safety with a remarkable comeback in their eight-goal thriller against Swansea City on Easter Monday, just days after their dramatic win against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

Arveladze has been impressed with the character Ince’s Royals have shown over the last few weeks in their battle against relegation.

“I’ve seen their last few games,” added Arveladze.

“They’re a team that wants to play football from the back. They want to build, and have good wingers and strikers. They play some good football.

“You could see their character in their comeback from 4-1 down to make the game even (against Swansea). He (Paul Ince) has something to build (on).”
