With a very strong string of performances in their last few weeks, Reading will be looking to carry on the good results when they host Queens Park Rangers at the Madejski Stadium in the 25th round of the English Championship.
Reading are sitting in third place in the league table with 46 points from 14 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses. They have scored 36 goals and conceded 32 since the start of the season.
Captain Paul McShane, who missed the FA Cup defeat at Manchester United, is again ruled out with a wrist injury, though he is back in training. Winger Callum Harriott is expected to miss the next four to six weeks with a hamstring injury, while goalkeeper Anssi Jaakkola and midfielder Stephen Quinn and striker Deniss Rakels are all sidelined.
The hosts have been in a very powerful mood in the last few weeks and they have solid since the start of the season. Reading have collected 12 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. They have won their last three games straight in the Championship. Their last game was against Bristol City away from home where they won 3-2 in a very entertaining game of football.
QPR are sitting in the 17th place in the Championship table with 29 points from 8 wins, 5 draws and 12 losses. They have scored 24 goals and conceded 36 since the start of the season.
QPR could give a debut to winger Kazenga LuaLua, who signed on loan from Brighton this week. Playmaker Tjaronn Chery remains out of favour while he seeks a move away but full-back Darnell Furlong and midfielder Michael Doughty could be in the squad after being recalled from loan spells at Swindon.
The visitors are in a much more difficult situation compared to the hosts. QPR have been struggling ever since the start of the season. The team have been up and down the table but they have settled at the bottom half for the most part of the season. They have collected 6 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Ipswich Town at home where they won 2-1.
