Vital Quotes:

Reading manager Brian McDermott - 'This is my worst run as a manager and there's nobody more aware of that than me. At the moment there's a toss of a coin between our best XI. There are players with big reputations and the performances aren't matching the reputations at the moment.'

Doncaster boss Sean O'Driscoll - 'Obviously confidence on both sides has not been sky-high but it's important that we go into the game believing we can play well rather than just hoping that will be the case.'

Reading Team News:

Reading could again be without striker Noel Hunt who is still recovering from a back problem, while Hal Robson-Kanu has missed training for the majority for the week and could miss out.

Player to watch: Kaspars Gorkss

The Latvian captain has made a good start to his Reading career, clearly showing his class and composure in many defensive situations already.

Doncaster Team News:

Sean O'Driscoll could welcome the returns of midfielder Brian Stock and Shelton Martis who have both recovered from injuries. However, James Chambers, Martin Woods, Adam Lockwood, Billy Sharp, Ryan Mason and Chris Brown are all still out injured.

Player to watch: Kyle Bennett

The young Wolves academy graduate has already made a big impression at the Keepmoat in his 2 appearances. The winger has good pace and good ball control.
