Reading’s Hope Akpan is psyching himself up for this weekend’s trip to take on Everton.

The 21-year old midfielder came through the Everton youth academy and admits it may be slightly emotional when he heads back to Goodison Park with the Royals on Saturday.

"It's going to be an exciting game for me," he told BBC Radio Berkshire.

"First and foremost I am a Reading player and that is my main focus. I'm happy to be going back to Goodison Park and am super excited. I was there since I was eight and I had a lot of experiences there but you have to live in the moment."
