Another day, another horrible away trip against yet another in form side and on top of it all the City ground has been a fairly miserable hunting ground for Reading in recent seasons.
Before their home game with Hull (due to be played on Wednesday) Forest were generally doing quite nicely thank you very much. Sitting 4th in the table, as this is written, their current run is just 2 defeats in the league all season though one of those was last time out (at Wigan) but have won 4 of their last 6 they have also scored in every home game so far this season. So the stuff of which Reading can currently only dream.
Forest expect to have Lewis Grabban back again but have doubts over Michael Dawson, Ryan Yates and Alfa Semedo. Reading will be without Joao and Boye while Meite is touch and go.
It’s Geoff Eltringham.....
