Reading manager Jose Gomes wants to work on his side's Plan B as he now has the squad finalised until January.

The Royals currently sit in 16th place but results have picked up with the new arrivals hitting their straps pretty quickly.

Gomes is hoping now he can work further with his playing squad to implement other plans should his tried and tested formula fail.

He said: "Now we have the squad we have so it is not the squad of person a, person b or person c. This is Reading's squad and I think it is a very good squad.

"We now just to need to use the players we have in the best way we can and we have players with quality.

"These players can play in different systems and we just need to improve the Plan B system in case we need to.

"When we are losing we need different kind of solutions. I hope we don't need that but we need to prepared in case of that.

"We have quality in our squad now and the players are ready to play and they know their tasks if we change the formation."

Gomes also confirmed his players on international duty were back and due to face Middlesbrough on Saturday, including George Puscas, who impressed for Romania.

Speaking about Puscas, Gomes said: "He is a great player and one of the reasons we picked him is because he is a goalscorer.

"His strongest point is that he scores goals and he needs consistency in his performance to find the moment to score.

"He did very well for the national team but I am manager of Reading and we are expecting him to do better and he has been helping us a lot."
