Bristol City (A) Match Preview

Reading travel to a Bristol City team that find themselves in the bottom three after failing to win in 5, while the Royals are making a slight revival with 4 points in their last 2 games

Vital Quotes:

Reading captain Jobi McAnuff -'It's about building up a bit of momentum now. The manager has told us it's about winning our home games and then looking to accumulate points away from home. We're going to Bristol City to win and if we can do that the picture will look even better.'

Bristol City boss Keith Millen - 'There are no issues with reputations here or with anyone being bigger than anyone else. There is a fantastic team spirit in our dressing room and I know they don't see anyone as being above anyone else'

Bristol City Team News:

Bristol City striker Brett Pitman could be set to start at Ashton Gate following coming off the bench last week to earn his team a point. Liam Fontaine and Jamie McAllister are still out with ankle problems.

Player to watch: Nicky Maynard

The classy striker was linked with a move away during the summer but nothing materialised. Has two goals so far this season and will want to build on that.

Reading Team News:

Reading are still likely to be without winger Jimmy Kebe against the Robins but Hal Robson-Kanu is now fit and should take his place. Andy Griffin is now fully fit but McDermott is still set to continue with Shaun Cummings in his spot.

Likely Reading starting XI: Federici, Griffin, Pearce, Gorkss, Mills, McAnuff, Leigertwood, Tabb, HRK, Church, Hunt

Player to watch: Simon Church

The Welsh international is on hot form at the moment, scoring two goals in as many games and his movement will be a handful to the Robins defence.
