Marc McNulty is aiming for a strong finish to the season at Dundee United before heading back to Reading to fight for his place.

The Championship club sent McNulty on loan to Tannadice this season, where has scored three goals in 24 games. While aware his goal tally has to improve, the striker wants to fight for his place at Reading.

Speaking of his move north, he said: “It’s a great club with great people and it was a chance to come up and play football. It’s not been the best in terms of return as a striker. I’d have loved to come up and finish the season saying I’d scored double figures.

“That’s not been the case and I look at myself, first and foremost, because I’ve probably not been the best I’ve ever been. I’ve not been the most consistent but there’s a few games left and if I can chip in with another few goals and wins for the club and do as well as I can I’ll be happy.

“I want to do well for a great club and it’s been good all round. I’ve still got another year at Reading so, at the minute, the plan is to go back down the road and speak to the manager. Hopefully it’s the same manager! I’ll speak to him and see what his plans are and take it from there.”
