READING FC'S Leandro Bacuna revealed he wants a more fixed role in the team.

The versatile midfielder has been deployed in the middle of the park as well as in both wing-back positions as boss Jaap Stam has rotated his squad.

And while Bacuna, who joined Royals from high-flying Aston Villa last year, insists he is content with his role for the moment, he stressed he hopes for a more permanent role in the team.

"For now, I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing and try to help the team," stated Bacuna.

"To be honest I'm keen to stick to one position but that's not something we are going to discuss now.

"We need to go forward and we'll see what happens next season."

The Netherlands-born midfielder was deployed on the right flank in Royals' 2-2 draw with Leeds United on Saturday.

He was instrumental in Reading's second goal after picking up the ball on the right and drilling a thunderous shot on target.

The goal was eventually awarded as a Eunan O'Kane own goal, but Bacuna insisted he was claiming it as his own.

"I shot on goal," asserted Bacuna.

"It got deflected and went in. It was good play from the left and Sone Aluko switched it over to the right."

Now, Royals face the mammoth task of taking on Championship table-toppers Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux tonight (7.45pm ko).

And Curacao international Bacuna insisted Royals will not fear the daunting task ahead, despite failing to win in any of their last seven games.

They sit on 36 points with 36 games played and Bacuna revealed the squad has set a target for 50 points.

"We spoke before about getting 50 points," he groaned.

"If you get there as soon as possible then I think we will be safe.

"Now we just have to look at it game by game. We have to try and win every game.

"But we need to try and get safe as soon as possible."

Royals will be without Yann Kermorgant, Paul McShane, Stephen Quinn, Callum Harriott, Jordan Obita and Tommy Elphick when they face Nuno Santo's men.

Joseph Mendes scored in an Under 23s match against Aston Villa as he continues his recovery towards fitness but is not thought to be ready for first-team action.

However, Chris Martin is thought to be back in contention after he missed out on the clash with Leeds United due to illness.

"It's going to be an interesting game," concluded Bacuna.

"They have been doing really well and it's a game where we need to match up to them."
