Fulham may be a decent team but we are in better form and will owe them one after the blow-out at their place.

Reading 2 Fulham 0

Beerens and Swift.

Reading in fine home form, and the chance to repay the drubbing at their place.

It has away win all over it.

0-2

We're due a draw, but I can't see past a Fulham double. 2-1.

Swift.

1 - 1 after 90 minutes and we win the replay 3 - 2 as the FA have given us special dispensation to practice for our forthcoming FA Cup match.

Hoping we revert to 5 at the back for this one after they ripped our back 4 apart last time. Should be a decent game if we do. 1-1

Moore was serving his suspension in that game and we collapsed after going down to 10 men with the score at 2-0.

Shouldn't need any switch in formation unless it's purely tactical.

Fulham have a knack of finding the net. We have given away plenty of opportunities for teams to have a go at us and not many have taken up the offer. I think Fulham will.
During their two away matches in December, Fulham scored 4 goals at Wolves (a 4-4 draw) and 2 goals at Ipswich (a 2-0 win). They also played three home matches, scoring 5 vs Royals (a result skewered by Danny Williams's sending off at 2-0 in the 2nd half). They beat Rotherham 2-1 and then drew 2-2 with high-flying Derby. They have therefore scored a minimum of 2 goals in every match played since the start of December.

My prediction: Royals 1 Fulham 2

Not sure if you were at the game but we collapsed long before we went down to 10 men and we could easily have been 5-0 down at half time. Much of that came from their two full backs getting down the outside of us just about every time they went forward hence the desire to go 5 at the back against Fulham. To your point, it would indeed be purely tactical.

If Obita is back from injury and can provide Blackett with support then I think we will win this one. For me Blackett has been beaten too easily recently with lots of opposition attacks coming down that side.

Reading 3 Fulham 1

Sounds like Chris Martin is refusing to play. That will help.

Chances of game being called off?
