Sheffield United (A) Match Preview

The Royals travel North to Bramall Lane on Tuesday night to face Sheffield United. After Saturday's FA Cup exploits its time to focus on league action and a full match preview is here....

Vital Quotes:

Brynjar Gunnarsson -

'We have to be realistic as Sheffield United are doing quite well, so to go there and maybe get a point would be a good result. We do need more, but we have to take all the points that we can get and if it`s going to be one then that is fine, but we`ll be going there to get the three points. We can`t be putting too much pressure on every game and we have to just play it as they come.'

Sheffield United Team News:

Sheffield United will be able to field James Harper, who is on loan from the Royals, and he is set to take his place in the centre of the Blades midfield. Glen Little could also feature but he is likely to be on the bench as new signing Mark Yeates makes his debut. Marcel Seip and Lee Williamson are both out injured.

Player to watch: James Harper

Despite it being clear that Harper has played his last game for the Royals, its not a wise decision to allow him to feature against us. He will have a point to prove against his parent club.

Reading Team News:

Zurab Khizanishvili is likely to start and Ivar Ingimarsson could be the one to miss out. Brian Howard and Gunnar Thorvaldsson are pushing for recalls to the starting 11.

Player to watch: Gylfi Sigurdsson

Sigurdsson made his league debut for the Royals in the reverse fixture earlier this season and has become one of the players of the season. If we are to win, he must play well.

Last Meeting

Saturday 22nd August 2009, Reading 1-3 Sheffield United. Madejski Stadium

Match Prediction:

It will be a tough game but our record in recent season's at Brammall Lane is very good and I fancy us to nick it, 1-0.

Next Fixture:

Saturday 30th January 2010, Barnsley (H)
