💬 Gary Caldwell previews Reading clash

24 August 2023

Manager Gary Caldwell has given his thoughts as City prepare to take on Reading at St James Park on Saturday, as well as paying tribute to Eamonn Dolan.

City will look to build on last weekend's 2-0 win at Carlisle as they take on the Royals, with the game being used as an opportunity to celebrate the life of the former City boss, and Reading academy manager.

"It's so important as a football club that we remember our past - we remember the good days and the bad days, but we also remember the good people that kept this club going and helped us get to where we are today.

"It will be great to see both clubs come together and hopefully all the supporters can remember him in a positive way - hearing from the players that knew him, it seems Eamonn was someone who has touched their lives and career."

Caldwell expects a fight against the Royals, who will be the second consecutive newly relegated side the Grecians have faced at SJP. 

"They are a real possession based team and have a different style of play in terms of the 4-2-2-2 so we have to be good out of possession.

"We have to be better on the ball too. For me it is a fantastic game that will give us a real test, and it is a game we are ready for."
