Newcastle (H) Match Preview

The Royals welcome already promoted Newcastle to the Madejski Stadium on Tuesday night, looking to keep alive our faint play off hopes. This is one of our games in hand and will be one of the toughest tests we have face at home in 2010. A full match preview is here....

Vital Quotes:

Gylfi Sigurdsson -

We just need to get it right against Newcastle tomorrow now. If you look back to January we were second from bottom, so to be safe now with five games to go is quite remarkable. Hopefully they take their foot off the pedal and we can get a result tomorrow , which will be important to us.'


Brian McDermott -

'I love night games at Madejski Stadium and against a team like Newcastle United will make it even more special. I`m sure their fans will be up for it and we`re expecting a lot of our own supporters to come down on the night and make a lot of noise. I`ll concentrate on our own strengths rather than worry too much about the opposition. I`ve watched some videos and will send out the team which I think is capable of getting a result.'

Reading Team News:

The Royals have no new injury concerns but will again be without the suspended Matt Mills, so Alex Pearce will deputise for his first home game since Boxing Day.

Simon Church made a lively sub appearance at Cardiff at the weekend and could replace Shane Long who is without a goal in over a month.

Player to watch: Adam Federici

Newcastle have so many creative players, the Aussie stopper can expect a busy evening. However he has been in fine form on late and made some excellent saves at Cardiff on Saturday.

Newcastle Team News:

Jose Enrique is set to return after he missed the win over Blackpool at the weekend with a virus but Tamas Kadar is out.

Player to watch: Andy Carroll

Striker has been a revolation this season and has found goals easy to come by at this level. Strong in the air but also very good with the ball at his feet, will give the Royals defence plenty of problems.

Last Meeting

Saturday 15th August 2009, Newcastle 3-0 Royals

Match Prediction:

Games don't come much tougher than this at Championship level and I feel this may be a step too far for our young side - Reading 1-3 Newcastle.

Next Fixture:

Saturday 17th April 2010, Peterborough (H)
