Gustavo Hamer looked back on a successful night for the Sky Blues after he ended up scoring in a 3-2 victory against league leaders Reading.

Hamer was pleased to get three points on the board and told how it was important to get back to winning ways.

“It’s an important win, especially after the few losses in recent games. I think we are a good team and it was important to have a win like this, just before the international break so we have two more games to get points.

“We went for it. We know we can do it, it’s not that we are scared to play, we were brave enough to play the ball between the lines and to open it with Max Biamou playing really well, he made the pitch look bigger than normal.”

The midfielder acknowledged the importance of the win and how it can breed confidence with more points the target in their next two outings before the international break.  

The midfielder scored the opening goal in the game, his first in Sky Blues with a tidy finish from the edge of the box in the first half.

“The Gaffer wants more shots on target, and I want to show that I can score to help the team and I did that today.

“It was a good ball from Jordan Shipley, and he got it back to Godden, I was free on the edge of the box.

“I said I hoped I would score today, and I did and I’m really happy.”

Sam McCallum struck late on to stretch City’s lead to a two-goal margin at 3-1, but even though the Royals scored late on City were well worth the win.

He said: “You are up two goals, it is important that if they score one like they did you are still one in front, so they have to press and we had to be smart and keep the ball in the corner.

“They are a good team with really good players but we can defend really well, it is important that we win. So, if we score three and they score two it is better for us.”

Hamer also spoke of how well he has settled into life in England and how much he is enjoying his time with Mark Robins side.

“I am really happy; my family is over so that’s good for me and my friends in the team we are really close together.

“Training is fine, but you want to play as many games as you can and if you play two games a week it is good.”
