Vokes Looks For Royals Revenge

12 February 2016

Sam Vokes is hoping the Clarets can continue on an upward trajectory this weekend as they travel to face Reading at the Madejski Stadium.

Vokes’ goal against Hull City was enough to clock up a seventh game unbeaten and move within a point of the top two.

And the Wales international has the additional incentive of avenging the defeat to the Royals at Turf Moor earlier in the campaign.

He said: "It's another massive game as it's always a tough place to go Reading.

“We saw them here earlier in the season and dropped points that day and we'll look to get a bit of revenge I suppose going down there."

The 26-year-old is in fine form, having scored four goals in his last six games as his partnership with Andre Gray continues to flourish.

The pair now have notched 23 Championship goals between them and after signing a new three-and-a-half year deal last month, Vokes is in confident mood.

“This season I feel like I've been getting back up there and with the goals in the last few games it has helped that confidence.

“The partnership I've got with Andre and the team clicking as we are at the minute and chipping in goals, it all helps.

“I love playing with him and we're both getting on the scoresheet which is nice.

"He has been chirping up a bit about the music in the dressing room but it's a winning formula at the minute so I'd like to keep that!”
