To Chalmers credit he helped Reading get up and down the park like a machine last night.
Hopkins done in 2 games what Kerr couldn’t in about 20, find a use for Chalmers. Without being too optimistic too early, I think Saturday and last night has shown Hopkin to be able to utilise this squad better than what Kerr could. The aim will always be to be 8th or above this season, however a win on Saturday puts us only 3 points behind Raith in 3rd (who would have a game in hand). I’m not championing us for a promotion play off run, however a good end to the season under Hopkin, will all of a sudden make as a more attractive team for players for next year and hopefully help get players like McCowan tied down on a longer contract. Similarly a bad result on Saturday has us heading back down the way, but it just shows you the fine margins of this league this season!
