The 23-year-old is keen to play in the top flight and is determined to build on a run of four goals in his last four games for the Royals.


"I am on a good scoring run at the moment and that feels pretty good," said Church.

"It has been a long time coming but it's starting to happen for me now and that is the main thing.

"This is an important season for me. I need to be playing regularly, as I am 23 and I have to take my chance.
