Le Fondre relieved at Reading win

Reading striker Adam Le FondreReading striker Adam Le Fondre expressed his relief following the club’s Premier League win against Everton.

The Royals came back from a 1-0 deficit to claim a 2-1 victory, with Le Fondre netting both goals.

Although it is early in the season, the three points moved the newly promoted side out of the relegation zone.

Le Fondre admitted after the game that the win will serve as a confidence boost:

“It’s a massive relief for all of us.” He is quoted by SkySports.

“We’ve got the three points and it’s a monkey off our backs as they say. 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.”

Le Fondre admitted that his side were second best in the opening 45 minutes, but deserved the win thanks to their second-half showing:

“At half-time, we had a word with ourselves and said ‘we need to play the Reading way’. That is what got us promoted to the Premier League after all.

“The gaffer was brilliant. He just tells you what you need to do. We just wanted to get a bit higher up the pitch, press a little higher from midfield and defence and shut down better and be more compact in the spaces in between.

“Coming out for that second half, I’m sure everyone could see a massive difference. We absolutely battered Everton for a time and we fully deserved our win.”
