Little Out To End Madejski Woe

Mark Little is hoping to end his Madejski Stadium hoodoo with City tomorrow (3pm).

The right-back has lost of all three of his visits to Reading in his career, including a 6-0 thumping as a Peterborough United player.

Last season a last-minute Nick Blackman goal earned the Royals a 1-0 win.
  
“I’ve had some bad times at the Madejski Stadium – I can’t remember ever winning there,” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“Reading’s form is a worry for us, but that’s something we need to overcome. In this league, it’s always going to be a difficult game.

“We’ll have a big number of fans there. It’s a real shock factor when you walk out of the tunnel and see all the colour and numbers there.

“We’re very grateful for their support; it’s not exactly a cheap time of year. Hopefully we can repay that support.”

Little was part of the team that lost late on at Birmingham City last weekend, extending the team’s recent run to just one win in seven games.

However, the defender insists the team have performed a lot better in matches than their points return suggests.

He added: “Our results haven’t been great recently and there’s an underlying need to get a result in the next game.

“I feel we put in a good performance against Birmingham without getting the result we deserved.

“We should have more points on the board and be higher up the table. After the start of the season, we’re disappointed to have dropped down into mid-table.

“At the same time, it does show the sort of progress we’ve made since last season.

“I don’t think confidence is an issue. We created plenty of chances at Birmingham; it could easily have been a different story.”

City fans will be able to pay on the day at Reading at non-member prices.
