Vital Quotes: Brendan Rodgers

We don't want to get carried away just because we won a home game!

Derby Team News:

Defender Dean Moxey is set to be rested with Jay McEveley set to take his place on the left hand side. Stephen Pearson is struggling with a groin injury and could miss out again.

Player to watch: Robbie Savage

Nigel Clough is building a young side but one of his top performers so far this season has been midfield veteran Robbie Savage.

Reading Team News:

Simon Church is set to make an unexpected recovery from a hip injury tht forced him off against Blackpool, but he is only set for a place on the bench with Grzegorz Rasiak set to take his place. Shane Long and Chris Armstrong are set to return to the bench after injury lay off's, after both coming through a midweek reserve game with no ill effects.

Player to watch: Gylfi Sigurdsson

Last Meeting

Match Prediction:

We are playing really well at the moment and I can't see us losing here, infact I can't see anything but a Reading win. 2-0
