1st February 2011
The Royals get back to league matters on Tuesday with a tough trip to Cardiff to face one of the promotion favourites.
We will hope to welcome back Jimmy Kebe but Alex Pearce remains a doubt, although Mathieu Manset is likely to return to the squad.
A full match preview is here...
Jobi McAnuff -
'Their firepower is unbelievable and we will have to be on our guard and ready for it. They`re very organised and hard to beat. It should be an interesting game against my old club. It will be very tough and we have to be strong and try to get a result.'
Aaron Ramsey could start after rejoining the club on loan from Arsenal, in a bid to regain match fitness following a long injury lay off with a broken leg.
Cardiff will be missing Stephen McPhail though who has a hamstring injury.
Midfielder is a fantastic talent but needs to regain match sharpness to force his way back into the Arsenal side. Will need watching closely by the Royals.
Jimmy Kebe is likely to return from illness and replace Hal Robson Kanu in the starting 11 but Alex Pearce is doubtful again meaning Ivar Ingimarsson will keep his place.
There is competition for places upfront with Simon Church's place most under threat, with Noel Hunt and Mathieu Manset returning to the squad.
Defender looked solid against Stevenage and will need to be at the top of his game against Cardiff's exceptional firepower.
Wednesday November 10th 2010, Reading 1-1 Cardiff
Tough game but I can see us getting a well deserved draw, 1-1.
Friday 4th February 2011, QPR (H)
