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.

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
