Reading v Fulham - The Boss` Views

Reading v Fulham - The Boss` Views

After, in our last two home fixtures against Reading, winning 5-0 and 4-2, drawing 1-1 in the first-leg of the play-off semi-final, wasn`t in the script.

But fair play to Jaap Stam, the Dutchman had put a game-plan in place and it worked a treat, with his side closing down Fulham high up the pitch and not letting Fulham get the chance to dictate the pattern of the game.

Ahead of the second-leg tonight, Slavisa Jokanovic has spoken to the media about what lies ahead tonight, remarking,

'I'm an optimist, I believe in my players and they believe in themselves and they've shown in the first leg that they play with confidence.

'Reading put us in a complicated situation in the first leg and we didn't find enough space for our combinations and we didn't move the ball with enough pace.

'But I believe we will show our personality as a team in the return leg.

'I'm not scared about the situation, that's football and yes there's potential for a penalty shoot-out, but there's one game in front of us and that's all.'

Penalty shoot-out!
