Back on 30th December the game between Reading and Fulham was evenly poised, at 0-0, when it was decreed the swirling fog was too bad for the game to continue.

On Tuesday evening the game will be played again and we`re hoping that Fulham, after the 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, will get back to winning ways.

However, it will be a tough match, Reading will also be looking to get back to winning ways after losing their last two Championship games.

Ahead of the game we have views from both camps, starting with Jaap Stam, the Reading manager, who had this to say to the local media about the fixture,

‘Sometimes you lose a couple of games in succession, that’s football. But it’s about the mentality in the team. Are you mentally strong to turn it around and start winning games again?

‘Fulham have got a great team, play very good possession football as well and we know that and everyone else is aware of it.

‘We need to make sure we play well and try and make it difficult for them.

‘There’s a lot of games coming up at the moment, but after a loss, it’s good to play again quickly as you have a chance to redeem yourself.’


And from the Fulham camp, our keeper, David Button, had this to say to the local media,

‘The abandonment was a bit strange. It was lucky the game was level because otherwise I’m sure it would have been a bit controversial.

‘We have to show Reading respect because they are ahead of us in the table. They play a similar passing style to us, so we are wary of them.”


Three points for Fulham tomorrow will half the gap between the two sides.
