Veljko Paunovic demands Royal recovery in ‘very hard game’ at Bournemouth

Reading manager Veljko Paunovic is calling upon his squad to bounce back from their three-game losing streak when they visit Bournemouth in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.

The Royals top the league having enjoyed an unbeaten spell that lasted until their 3-2 defeat at the hands of Coventry on October 30, a result that was then followed by two subsequent losses to Preston and Stoke.

Paunovic is hoping his side can regroup after the international break and rediscover their early form against Bournemouth, who are currently fourth in the table having lost only one league fixture this season.

“It’s going to be a very hard game, but I’m excited, I like to embrace these games,” he told the club website.

“I think that Bournemouth are one of the best teams in the league, definitely a contender for the top six if not the top two spots in the table, so it’s not going to be easy.

“We have to acknowledge that we did a good job at the start of the season and we have to embrace what we have done so far.

“Now we have to get back… we have to find the balance.

“We had a bad week of results, but every team in the world can have a bad week. In the games we lost, when you look at our metrics, you will see there was still improvements in our game: our fitness levels, shots on goal, ball possession, pass completion, creation of goal-scoring opportunities.”

Daniel Farke’s Norwich look to extend their unbeaten run to eight games when they visit Middlesbrough, who are also riding high having not suffered a defeat in 10 fixtures.

Farke acknowledged that a confident Boro squad represent a significant test for the club, but countered that his own team have also proved difficult to score against this season.

“Perhaps tomorrow it will be 5-5, because both teams haven’t conceded many,” he said on canaries.co.uk.

“I expect a game where we have to be patient and efficient. It’s difficult to break them and they’re in a top unbeaten run.”

The German also spoke of his admiration for Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock, saying: “I like Neil Warnock a lot because I love characters and he’s a big one.

“He’s done it for so many years with so many promotions. He’s so experienced and still full of energy and motivation. Even if you don’t like his style, you have to admire it.”

Elsewhere on Saturday, second-from-bottom Sheffield Wednesday head to Preston to play their first game with new manager Tony Pulis at the helm.

Bottom club Derby are also undergoing a change of personnel as they face Bristol City under the temporary care of a quartet of coaches that includes Wayne Rooney.

Second-placed Watford are hoping to resume a winning run against Mark Warburton’s QPR, who have won just three of the 11 games they have played this season, while eighth-placed Stoke clash with Huddersfield.

Barnsley will face Nottingham Forest at Oakwell, whereas Cardiff are away at the Den to tackle Millwall.

Luton take on Blackburn at Kenilworth Road, Swansea host Rotherham and Brentford are away at Wycombe.

    AFC Bournemouth 4 - 2 Reading - Match Report

    Bournemouth knock Reading off top spot after staging second-half fightback

    Dominic Solanke scored twice as Bournemouth staged an incredible second-half fightback to beat promotion rivals Reading 4-2.

    The Royals looked to be cruising at half-time after Lucas Joao’s early penalty and a rare Sonny Aluko goal had put them 2-0 in front.

    Solanke’s double coupled with an Arnaut Danjuma effort and a Lewis Cook wondergoal saw Bournemouth leapfrog Reading at the top of the Championship table.

    Bournemouth were without striker Josh King after he tested positive for coronavirus during international duty with Norway but captain Steve Cook returned from a ban.

    Reading were boosted by the return of skipper Liam Moore from injury and came storming out of the starting blocks.

    Alfa Semedo’s jinking run on the byline drew a foul from Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and Joao calmly scored from the penalty spot to make it 1-0 after only four minutes.

    Joao could have doubled Reading’s lead soon after when he got on the end of Semedo’s drilled cross but could only guide his header wide of the far post with Begovic beaten.

    It took until the 18th minute for Bournemouth to call Reading goalkeeper Rafael Cabral into action.

    David Brooks, who scored for Wales against the Republic of Ireland during the international break, fizzed a low shot goalwards from just inside the penalty area and Rafael did well to fling himself to his right and turn it behind for a corner.

    Reading continued to soak up Bournemouth pressure and posed a threat on the counter attack.

    Match Highlights

    Their patient approach paid off two minutes before half-time when Aluko pounced to make it 2-0.

    Former Liverpool midfielder Ovie Ejaria rolled the perfect pass into the feet of Aluko and the ex-Fulham mad side-footed coolly side-footed past a despairing Begovic and into the bottom corner.

    It was Aluko’s first goal since January 2019 and only his second in 44 appearances.

    Bournemouth were back in the game 11 minutes after the break when Solanke thundered his shot into the roof of the net from Junior Stanislas’ teasing low cross.

    Brooks then played in Danjuma to make it 2-2 just three minutes later with a cleverly disguised pass.

    Lewis Cook completed the turnaround with a stunning 25-yard effort that fizzed into the top corner with 13 minutes remaining.

    Reading thought they had equalised when Joao’s header from a corner clattered off the inside of the post and Begovic somehow managed to claw it off the line.

    Solanke sealed the points in the 89th minute with a composed finish from the edge of the penalty area after dispossessing the hapless Rafael.

    There was still time for Begovic to make another superb save to deny Reading substitute Michael Olise as the Royals crashed to a fourth straight defeat.
