Pundits praised McCarthyâ€™s efforts in the last league game with Swansea a week-and-a-half ago, and as a result, the 6ft 3in keeper is looking to continue his good form in the Premier League game against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
â€śIâ€™m hoping to continue in the same vein, but Iâ€™m only taking one game at a time,â€ť he told the Reading Post.
â€śI have been pleased with my performances so far and Iâ€™m looking to push on in every game.
â€śI would have rather kept on playing every week and keep the momentum going rather than have the international break.
â€śBut itâ€™s been nice to get a couple of days off. All the boys are really confident at the moment.
â€śWeâ€™ve been working hard in training and everyone is looking sharp so hopefully we can take it into Saturdayâ€™s game.â€ť
