Reading manager Mark Bowen believes George Puscas' goals can fire Reading up the Championship table in the months to come.

Puscas was signed for £7.5m from Inter Milan in the summer and made an immediate impact, bagging two goals in a 3-0 win over Cardiff in August.

However, the Romanian hasn't netted for the Royals since then despite impressive performances for his country in the two international breaks this season.

Bowen said: "He is a goalscorer and he scored again for his country against the Faroe Islands so that will do him good as well.

"I think with George, as a team and as a group, we have to try and give him every opportunity to bring the best out of him and create more chances for him if we can.

"He is getting in the right positions and I know it is an old cliche, but if he keeps getting in those positions and the chances, then the goals will start coming for him.

"Once his goals kick in, there is no reason why he can't be a 15-20 goal a season man which this club has craved."
