Blackman, who joined the Royals from Sheffield United, impressed in Saturday's 2-1 win, winning the free-kick for Jimmy Kebe's winner.

And the 23-year-old striker, while also hailing the fans, is relishing the prospect of developing at the Berkshire club.

"It was a great result for us - the boys really dug in and it was great to be a part of it," said Blackman.

"Everyone could see how hard we worked and the gaffer won't let that drop.

"The gaffer said 'go and score the winner' which showed he has great faith in me. I've not had that at previous clubs so it was great.

"It was brilliant - the fans were fantastic and right behind the boys. Even when we went to 1-1 they were right behind me and the rest of the team."
