Off the back of a decent draw against league leaders Southampton, Reading travel to an in form Crystal Palace side who are unbeaten in 6, winning 5 of those games
Reading manager Brian McDermott - 'We're four or five points off second so there's nothing in it as far as I'm concerned. We're moving ahead, I'm excited about the players and what they're trying to do for us. They have real energy and intensity about them and I haven't seen a team work as hard as that in the Championship this season.'
Royals captain Jobi McAnuff on returning to his former club - 'I had a couple of good years there and I enjoyed my time, and it's always nice to go back - I'm sure they'll give me an interesting reception!'
Influential midfielder Darren Ambrose is a major doubt after picking up a knock in midweek against Southampton. Alex Marrow and Lee Hills are long-term absentee's for Palace.
The England U19 striker has picked up many admirers for his fine performances in a Palace shirt in recent games
Midfielder Jay Tabb has fully recovered from his injury picked up two weeks ago against Burnley but is only expected to have a place on the bench. Brynjar Gunnarsson has picked up a slight knock so is not expected to feature.
The former Eagles midfielder put in a man-of-the-match performance against Southampton and will need to be on form to conceal Palace's strong midfield
Always is a goal fest when these two sides meet, so I'm going for a 2-2 draw
Reading - Nottm Forest (A) - Tues 1st November - nPower Championship
Crystal Palace - Portsmouth (H) - Tues 1st November - nPower Championship
