Luke Turner picks out someone who could be key in getting a victory on Saturday…

Blues head to the Madejski Stadium on Saturday to face Brian McDermott`s Reading looking to at least get back to winning ways with the play-offs seemingly gone.

For Gary Rowett`s side to do this, I believe that one player could be key to it. That man is our right back Paul Caddis.

The Scotland international was one of the only players to put in a respectable performance against Brighton on Tuesday where we fell to a second consecutive 2-1 defeat.

He was one of the only players in the team to try and get things going by getting forward and attempting to put some sort of pressure on the Brighton defence.

I admit, his final ball wasn’t good enough but at least he was forcing the issue which is more than what can be said for a few others.

None of our players showed any quality on the ball but Caddis was always available as an outlet on the right hand side and looked most likely to make something happen.

With some players possibly feeling like there is nothing to play with, I believe Caddis can be the man to take it into his own hands and lead my example.

He can definitely cause problems to the Reading defence and, on his day, can deliver a cross that will be finished off by Kyle Lafferty.

He can show that we still have plenty of points to play for and need to end the season strongly. His positivity going forward is hugely advantageous to us and his fighting spirit can help spur us on.

The players really need to step up again now as they can’t let all the good work go undone and end the season in poor form after it looked so promising for so long.

  • Luke, if Caddis the â??keyâ?? to a win then we really are screwed. I donâ??t question his commitment or heart, but his delivery is shocking. I realise youâ??ve acknowledged this in your piece but to credit him for â??tryingâ?? to make something happen is like praising a kettle for boiling your water. The fact is, if Caddisâ?? delivery had been decent, the result could have been different. He had 4 opportunities in one attack to put the ball in and failed to beat the first man. The only reason he was our main outlet was because of the narrow system deployed by Rowett.

    Blues COULD get a result at Reading if we have players such as Maghoma, Toral and Cotterill singing from the same hymn sheet. Caddis is, and always will be, an average, honest, 5 out of 10 player.
