Reading’s Dele-Bashiru pledges to repay Paunovic’s faith


The Nigerian was dispatched to the Watford Royals and has since shone under the Serbian manager

Tom Dele-Bashiru has pledged to repay the confidence Veljko Paunovic has shown in him by joining Reading.

The Nigerian midfielder’s inability to secure a regular spot at Watford led him to be loaned out to Select Car Leasing Stadium for the 2021-22 campaign.

Since joining the Royal, Dele-Bashiru had played four games without any success in front of goal.

Against Peterborough United, however, he scored a brace in the 3-1 triumph over Darren Ferguson’s side.

Building on his performance, the 21-year-old vowed to continue scoring goals and providing assists to thank the Serbian for trusting him.

“I am really grateful to the blunderer for his confidence in me and I hope I can continue to reward him with goals and assists,” he said. Reading site.

“Everyone now has a better understanding of their defensive responsibilities so I’m sure the clean sheet will come soon.

“We were all buzzing about after the final whistle and I’m sure the guys will cherish it and want to keep having those feelings of victory.”

Before the game against Posh, Reading had gone four games without winning in the English second tier.

“I’m very happy that we finally got the win and scored two goals, it was a good team performance,” he continued.

“It was a bit of a messy game until Swifty scored an incredible free kick, and after that we had a bit of momentum and it was good to get the second and third goals.

“It was a great feeling to do it at home, the support from the fans was great and I could hear them screaming my name. I’m really happy that I got the three points.

“For the first one, I watched the ball go by and I had a feeling the keeper would go back to where the ball came from, so I reversed it in the bottom corner.

“And the second I heard everybody scream shoot, Swifty scream shoot, so I thought why don’t you go!”

Dele-Bashiru is set to start at the Royal midfielder when they travel to Craven Cottage for their next game against Fulham on September 18.
