Danny Guthrie hopes to win back Reading fans' trust
Guthrie was disciplined by the club after refusing to travel with the Royals squad for their game with Sunderland on 11 December.
"I do feel I've got a point to prove. Obviously, it's been a difficult few weeks," he told the club's official website.
"I worked my socks off and I'll only get better. It was a really good starting point for me.
"It was nice for the fans to give me their backing. I noticed that at (the 1-0 defeat at) Man City when I came on they were behind me and being at home it was nice.
"I want to kick on from here. They had a right to (jeer at me) and I was prepared for that. But it was a nice boost before the game."
