Veljko Paunovic hailed George Puscas for scoring the winning goal.

Reading

defeated Blackburn 1-0 with

George Puscas’

goal, and

Veljko Paunovic

has praised the player for his performance.

“George came back from his long injury and the surgery and he was not only good because of the goal,”

Paunovic said in the post-match press conference

.

“He also worked really hard and is now at the level when he can play 90 minutes.

“He gives us more options as well and allows us to be more creative with our ideas.

“I was also very happy with the generous and unselfish assist from Lucas Joao [from which Puscas scored].

“We won the ball with our high pressing and that’s what we needed. And that’s what we are going to need going forward.”

Blackburn boss has also talked about the match in the press conference, saying that they didn’t deserve the defeat.

“There were quite a few positives which I was pleased with and which I told the group afterwards,”

he said

.

“With all the possession we had, though, we just weren’t creative enough.

“I didn’t think that Reading hurt us that much and it was a game that we were in charge of for much of it. We often controlled it.

“But with the final pass or the final ball in, it probably just wasn’t enough. We did have a few half-chances but that was about it.

“I can still take the positives from it, the lads kept working hard.

“I’d rather be playing like that and losing 1-0 than getting beat 3-0 every week – and we have got no idea of what we’re going to do and how we’re going to go.

“I think that we can be controlled and composed but we do have to find answers. The last 20 meters are hurting us.”
