Jermain Defoe pinpointed the team’s movement as key to our fine 3-1 victory over Reading on Sunday.

Movement key - JD

The striker led the way with two goals as we secured our first victory of the campaign in convincing style at the Madejski Stadium.

‘JD’ made it three goals for the season with a strike in each half with Gareth Bale’s first this term sandwiched between. Reading scored a consolation in the last minute.

“It was important to get a win,” said Jermain.

“I thought we deserved it. It was a great performance, everyone worked hard, we created a lot of chances and it could have been more, but we’re delighted to take the three points.

“I thought the movement was the key. Everyone was moving, we kept possession, everyone worked hard around the ball and the quality was there.

“This could now kick-start our season.”
