'Massive relief' for Reading
Sunday 18 November 2012
Adam Le Fondre says Reading's players cannot wait to face Wigan on Saturday after finally grabbing their first Premier League win this weekend.
Brian McDermott's side came from 1-0 down to beat Everton 2-1, courtesy of two second-half goals from Le Fondre.
The result not only saw Reading pick up their first three-point haul of the campaign but also moved them out of the bottom three in the table.
Le Fondre said: "We need to build on that result and look to go from strength to strength. We can't wait for Wigan next weekend now, we'll hopefully take this momentum up there with us. It's a massive relief for all of us.
"We've got the three points and it's a monkey off our backs as they say," he added. "It's a magnificent result for us. We've been working hard all season to get that win and we've been in some great positions so far this season and not finished teams off."
