So you have had a very similar start to ourselves, with 1 draw and 1 defeat in the league. Is that a fair reflection of how the games have gone, or did you perhaps deserve more?
Probably fair in all honesty. We have had enough chances in both League games to win them, but you have to put them away. That's been part of our problem.
One of our players of the season last year, Ryan Bertrand, has joined you - what kind of start has he made this season?
He's had a steady start, a bit early to judge in fairness. If he reaches his potential then we have a cracking player, if only for 6 months.
Not too many other additions though this summer, but you have kept a lot of last season`s squad together - how do you feel you will do this season? We tipped you to go up automatically - so no pressure!!
We all expected the squad that finished 3rd last season to be added to and strengthened. It hasn't and if anything, it's actually weaker. We have a ridiculously small squad and can't afford any injuries or suspensions, so adding to it is a must. If we can land a couple of decent players, then we'll be in a position to give it a real go, but as it stands right now, we'll be mid table at best in my opinion.
How are you expecting to line up on Saturday?
Billy Davies has started both games so far with a 4-4-2 formation. Our usually solid and dependable right back Chris Gunter, is suspended already. He'll be replaced by either Chambers or Moloney....probably Chambers because of his experience.
Camp, Chambers, Bertrand, Wilson, Morgan, Cohen, Majewski, McKenna, Anderson, Blackstock, Earnshaw.
Who is the player we should look out for?
Robert Earnshaw is the easy choice because of his goals, but keep an eye out for our midfielder Radoslaw Majewski. When he's on form, he's a delight to watch. Great eye for a defence splitting pass and scorer of the odd spectacular goal or two.
And who do you most fear from the Reading side?
Gylfi Sigurdsson. Grafter, playmaker and scores more than his fair share.
How many fans are you expected to bring down to Berkshire?
There should be 2,000 or thereabouts.
Finally give us a score prediction?
