BBC Berkshire pundit Mick Gooding has said that Reading should be targeting victories in their next two fixtures.

The Royals return to the Madejski Stadium on Saturday, with Pep Clotet bringing his Birmingham City to Berkshire.

Reading will then follow Saturday’s clash with a trip to Oakwell to face Barnsley, who find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table five points from safety.

Speaking after the victory on Saturday, the former player and manager said: "It was such an important game for both teams.

"Reading got the win and it eases them away from the relegation zone.

"It didn't look like they would come out on top, but they turned it around so fair play to them.

"Next week, why can't they beat Birmingham at home?

“Then it's Barnsley and they're not having the best of seasons so far so fingers crossed Reading can get the win there as well."

Gooding went on to say how he felt George Puscas’ ‘whole body language changed’ after finding the net from the penalty spot against Wigan.

“The second the penalty went in, his whole body language changed.

"His quick feet for the second goal was great and he knew he was going to finish it.

"His confidence was so low. He still had a lot to do when he put the ball through the defender's legs at Wigan but he knew he was going to score.

"And that was the difference in getting that penalty in the back of the net made to him.

"He looked fantastic afterwards."
