Adam Le Fondre: Reading striker in action against Southampton

Reading striker Adam Le Fondre is not yet ready to throw in the towel in the battle against relegation despite Saturday's 2-0 home defeat to Southampton.

The loss left the Royals seven points adrift of safety in the Premier League with only six games remaining, but Le Fondre remains optimistic.

"We've got to start expressing ourselves on the ball a bit more," he said.

"And we'll pick ourselves up and go again. It's not in our make-up to give in.

"Never say never and until it's mathematically impossible, we still believe.

"We'll always battle to the end - that's what the fans expect from us and it's what we expect from ourselves.

"We're paid professionals and we'll give our all for the cause.

"We've got Liverpool here next weekend and we love games like that, so we'll welcome the challenge and try to make it horrible for them."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
