The meeting offers both sides the chance to put the pressure on those around them. Reading could move into the top 6 with a win while QPR could climb 10th if they pick up the three points.
Both sides have to be very inconsistent this season, despite their top half status, and a win either way tonight could make a significant difference with both sides looking to push for a play off place.
Reading have only won one of their last 7 games, losing three and drawing three. Steve Clarke’s side lost 3-1 to Nottingham Forest last time out, letting slip a 1-0 lead.
Despite heads being low following the defeat at the City Ground, Reading midfielder Danny Williams believes the short turnaround between games will help his side.
“There’s nothing worse than losing a game and not being able to get out there quickly to turn things around,” he said.
“We’ve shown in the early stages of this season that we can beat any team in this division.
“It’s about getting the confidence of winning again. The performance doesn’t matter too much, it’s about getting the points to get the buzz back in the dressing room.”
QPR meanwhile have lost three of their last five but managed to pick up a crucial three points at the weekend with a 1-0 win at home to Leeds United.
Charlie Austin’s goal, his first since September, proved to be the difference between the sides and moved the club back into the top half of the table. It was also his first touch on the pitch after coming on a sub and Rangers first goal for 5 games, and his re emergence from injury should prove a welcome boost to Rangers fans.
The 8 goal forward is now in line to start tonight with Michael Petrasso the most likely to make way.
Reading have won two and drawn three of the last five meetings between the two sides with their last defeat in this fixture coming at home in 2011, and there’s no doubt that manager Steve Clarke will be looking for a similar result tonight.
Both these sides have Premier League pedigree and will be hoping to put together a decent run of form as we approach the start of the busy Christmas run in. Three or four wins could easily put either side into the playoffs and there’s definitely all to play for tonight.
Just make sure you don’t miss any of the action!
