Ipswich (H) Match Preview

After a win on the road last weekend, it's time to try once more to end the winless home run, against Roy Keane's Ipswich. A full match preview is here.....

Vital Quotes: Brendan Rodgers

This home run is not going to go on forever. The run will end, we hope it's on Saturday.

Reading Team News:

Brendan Rodgers is set to keep faith with the same side that beat Coventry last weekend, meaning the fit again Jimmy Kebe will have to make do with a place on the bench. Matt Mills will again miss out with a knee injury whilst Noel Hunt, Chris Armstrong and Julian Kelly are long term absentees.

Player to watch: Gylfi Sigurdsson

Has forced his way back into the team in recent games and will be sure to give Liam Rosenior a tough afternoon.

Ipswich Team News:

Tommy Smith and Gareth McAuley are injured so Alex Bruce will deputise at the back. Liam Rosenior can play against his parent club and will be keen to prove a point on his return to the Madejski Stadium.

Player to watch: Liam Rosenior

Has hit out at the club this week over his departure back in the summer and is desperate to prove that he is a better player than Royals fans gave him credit for in his time at the Madejski Stadium.

Last Meeting

Ipswich travelled back to the Madejski Stadium in March and secured a 1-0 win thanks to a fine goal from Jon Stead.

Match Prediction:

I'm really feeling confident about this game and am sure the home run will come to an end. Royals 4-0 Ipswich!

Next Fixture:

November 21st 2009, Blackpool (H)
