Ian Harte insists Reading must look to take maximum points from the upcoming double header at the Madejski Stadium.
The Royals entertain Barnsley on Saturday and Ipswich the following Tuesday and the experienced left-back believes the games provide a perfect opportunity to get back on track following the defeat to Middlesbrough.
He told the club`s official website: "We have to now focus on this Saturday's game, with two home games coming up we want to try and get six points.
"As a team, as a squad we have to try and knuckle down and do that.
"We just didn't have the spark on Saturday and they had a dream start which set us back. There`s nothing we can do about that now so we just have to go back and make the Madejski Stadium a fortress."
