Will we ever win at home again?!

Will we ever win at home again?!

After yet another home game without a victory, we do have to ask if we will ever win at the Madejski Stadium again!?

Joking aside, this is clearly playing on the minds of the players every time they set foot on the hallowed turf and despite playing some decent football in all of our home games this season, the pressure of seeing it through is too much to handle.

Now a large number of these players were not involved in a large majority of this long home run, and that is the same with the manager but Brendan Rodgers is still acutely aware of the statistic hanging over the Royals heads.

'We want to get this disappointing home run nailed now. It's another game gone by but we have to persevere.'

With Middlesbrough arriving in Berkshire next Saturday, the pressure will be back on and that makes it even more important that we pick up three points away at Preston on Tuesday.
