The Royals welcome Doncaster to the Madejski Stadium on Saturday on the back of the fine 4-0 win over Burnley last weekend.
The visitors will be without their star striker Billy Sharp who is out with a hamstring injury, but we will still be in for a tough game as Donny will include former Royal John Oster in their midfield.
A full match preview is here...
Royals manager Brian McDermott on his Doncaster counterpart -
'I like their manager, I like his philosophy, they can all handle the ball and I like their chairman. I listened to an interview Sean did on Sky and I thought he was spot on with some of the things he was saying.'
Hal Robson Kanu on his chances of starting this game -
I have made an impact when I`ve played and I`ve done the job for the team - that`s all I can do. I train hard, I train well and obviously look to get the reward on the Saturday.'
Jimmy Kebe will be given every chance to prove his fitness after missing the 4-0 win over Burnley, but he may have to make do with a place on the bench even if he does make it.
Brian McDermott is unlikely to make any changes to the side that won so well last week after Jem Karacan showed no ill effects of a knock in that game, and Jay Tabb also came through unscathed.
Brynjar Gunnarsson is still out and Jake Taylor had knee surgery this week and will miss at least a month.
Returned to the starting line up last weekend and has got plenty of praise for his display in the role off the striker.
Billy Sharp will definitely miss the game with a hamstring injury which will keep him out for at least 6 weeks, after he hobbled off against his old club Sheff Utd last weekend.
James Chambers and Wayne Thomas could return from knee injuries, whilst Matt Mills brother Joseph is set to line up at left back after joining on loan from Southampton.
A key squad member of the 2005/06 championship winning Royals squad is now pulling the strings in the midfield for Doncaster.
6th February 2010, Doncaster 1-2 Royals
This will be a difficult game for the Royals against a very strong, and often under rated, Doncaster side. I can see this being a very entertaining game but can only see us getting a point. 2-2
