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

Shola`s Assessment

With all eyes on Owen, Shola must feel like he`s slipped somewhat under the radar. Nevermind big fella - we`ll give you a soapbox:

"Reading was the story of our season. We started off well and we had a few half-chances. I also thought the boys defended well. Reading are strong at home - they have been all season - and we knew we had to get at them. Unfortunately, we gave away a sloppy goal.

At the end we were trying to push for an equaliser - the boys did all they could to get that goal. We had chances. I had a header which I couldn't get enough power on to trouble the keeper, and Kieron Dyer had a chance at the end. Goals win games, and we were lacking that killer instinct.

We didn't finish as well as we can do. It's very disappointing, especially as a striker, when as a team you're not scoring goals. It hurts you. I've managed to play half an hour and it's a mix of emotions.

To be honest, I'm delighted that I've even managed to get in one appearance in this season. But it's another away loss for us and they've come along far too often this season. We've lost many games we should have got something out of, and that's something we're going to have to sort out. But for me it's fantastic to be back.

It's so difficult when you're on the sidelines. You want to help the team, but you're not physically able to. Hopefully, I can now do my bit, even though there's only two games left, and help us get a couple of victories.'

Again - good to have the Big Sho back in the side. Sad to say we have missed him.

Seconded. His first touch might be as bad as Fumaca's but at least he's a trier.

If we're ever going to progress we can't keep on with Shola - he's pony!
