Harrison Reed feels confidence growing in the Fulham camp after the Whites drew with Liverpool on their return to the Premier League – and the midfielder wants to build on their impressive start at Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend.
Marco Silva’s visibly unsettled the Champions’ League runners-up and took the lead twice at Craven Cottage, with Reed admitting Fulham were somewhat disappointed at having to settle for a draw. The tigerish midfielder, who forged an encouraging engine room partnership with summer signing Joao Palhinha, felt the point was reward for the squad’s summer of strenuous work.
He told the club’s official website:
“All pre-season was working towards that first game. When we saw Liverpool come out, we knew it was going to be a tough test, but going into the game we were full of confidence after last season. It was about being aggressive, getting in their face and starting the season how we wanted to. To come away with a point, and be a little bit disappointed about it, was a great start.”
The former Southampton schemer knows that going to Molineux will be an extremely tough assignment.
“Wolves are a very good side. They’ve been in the Premier League for a long time. Every game in the Premier League is tough, every game is slightly different, but as a team we’re going to focus on ourselves. We’re going to go into the game exactly how we want to be – aggressive, front foot, get on the ball, dominate possession. We know it’s a tough game away at Wolves, it’s a tough ground to go to with the atmosphere, one we’re looking forward to, and off the back of Saturday we’re full of confidence.”
