'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Midfielder says Reading can compete in Prem

Reading midfielder Jem Karacan has said that the Royals squad can compete in the Premier League and feels their first win is just around the corner.

Brian McDermott's side are yet to gain their first three points in the division, which has made the Royals one of the firm favorites for relegation, alongside Norwich City. Despite this doubt, the Turkish under 21 international believes the Royals are playing well enough to maintain their Premier League status and a win is not far away.

Speaking to the Official Reading FC website, Karacan said: 'It's three unbeaten for us now and we'll go into the next game full of confidence aiming to get a win. We've all dreamed about playing in this league - I have since I can remember. We deserve to be here and we're proving that day in, day out.'

'We're scoring goals, getting points on the board against teams that finished in the top ten last season. There's no pressure - we know how good we are but we've still got a lot of proving to do. Ideally we want to play every week but after the international break we'll recoup and get ready for Liverpool at Anfield.'
