Vicarage Road



Royals Ready For Away Day

Reading travel to Watford on the back of their 6-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday, still in search of their first away win of the season.

The Royals have won three out of three at home, but have struggled on their travels, gaining just one point from a possible nine.

Watford are struggling with injuries and will be wounded following a disappointing defeat at the hands of Plymouth.

Steve Coppell will be hoping his side can take advantage of a depleated Watford team to gain their first away win of the campaign and kick-start their title challenge.

Vital Quotes:

Young protégé Jem Karacan on the prospect of winning away;

'The boys have been buzzing since the 6-0. Now we need to go and put in a good performance and get an away win.

'We prepare the same for away games as we do at home, we keep our feet on the ground and we'll be confident about getting a result.

'Watford lost in midweek but that doesn't mean anything, you can't make predictions. There are shocks every weekend in this division.'

Watford Team News:

Watford are without Tamas Priskin and Lloyd Doyley, who both picked up hamstring strains in the midweek 2-1 defeat to Plymouth.

They will be replaced by Adrian Mariappa and Will Hoskins, with Hoskins Watford's only striking option due to Grzegorz Rasiak's shoulder injury.

Player to watch: John-Joe O'Toole

He may be a poor-man's Stephen Hunt, but he is a pest to play against. He will be looking to impress as he faces his idol.

Reading Team News:

Reading have no fresh injury worries ahead of the trip to Vicarage Road and Coppell will be expected to play the same side that destroyed Sheffield Wednesday in midweek.

Player to watch: Noel Hunt

He made his league debut against Sheffield Wednesday and was in great form, scoring two and creating one. His energy and work-rate will make him a constant thorn in Watford's side.
