Kazenga LuaLua is anticipating a difficult match against Reading at the Madejski Stadium next Tuesday and says the side will be eager to continue their momentum following an impressive 2-0 win over Derby County.
LuaLua says Albion will have to be at their best to beat the Royals and admitted that he would rather the game be played sooner.
He told seagulls.co.uk, “After a win you want to play the next game as quickly as possible. But it wasn’t to be, as it’s an FA Cup weekend and now we’ll look forward to playing the game on Tuesday.
“It’s going to be a tough game for us in the Championship, but every match is going to be tough now. Reading are not far from where we are in the league, but it’s still going to be a very difficult game.
“I didn’t play in the last game [v Reading] because I was injured; We didn’t start the game well, but came back from 2-0 down and drew the game 2-2, which was a good result.
“They’ve a powerful team that has a lot of pace and they’ve got some good wingers as well. With the squad they have, they may feel they should be in a higher position, but this league is very tough and competitive.”

The Congolese winger is now targeting more starting berths between now and the end of the season and explained how he always seeks to change a game, whether that be in the starting line up or from the bench.
“It’s nice to be called an impact player because it means that people think you can make a difference from the bench, but as a player you always want to be in the starting eleven.
“If I’m on the bench, then as a winger, I want to see what the opposition right back does and see what his strengths and weaknesses are. “Now I just want to score more goals, play as many games as I can and help the team push up the table.”
