Coppell: 'Target Is To Win Game'

Coppell: 'Target Is To Win Game'

Reading boss Steve Coppell says that his side will be pulling out all the stops to get the win this weekend against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

With promotion and the Championship title under their belts there is just a small matter of beating Sunderland’s record points total to deal with and to stand any chance of doing that they will need at least a point tomorrow.

And with Sheffield Wednesday now being safe from the drop after last week’s win and that means Coppell must be wary of complacency.

'The target is to win the game, that's been the approach all year,' Coppell told the club's official website.

'Wednesday are safe, it's their last home game of the season and they'll want to put a show on. We don't want to play second fiddle though, we'll go there with the intention of winning.

'I hope we do the business, we don't want to lose in the remaining two games. Just one defeat at home and one defeat away would cap our season wonderfully well.”
