Cardiff City Stadium
2nd January 2012
3.00 pm KO
On the back of solid victories, Reading and Cardiff face off at the Cardiff City Stadium. The Royals are in a fine run of form while Malky Mackay's Cardiff are making themselves known as genuine promotion contenders
Cardiff boss Malky Mackay - 'Reading are a good team who are in a good vein of form right now. It wasn't too long ago that we were at the Madejski Stadium for a hard game, picking up the win there. On Monday we fully expect the same intensity and test from a team that have been together for a couple of years with good experience, but we're looking forward to it.'
Reading manager Brian McDermott - 'My strongest memory from 2011 is our supporters. They've been superb for us this season, our home support is getting bigger and bigger, and when we go away we have such a great following.'
Cardiff defender Kevin McNaughton should be back for the Bluebirds, after picking up a knock on Boxing Day. If he isn't fit, Darcy Blake is ready on standby.
The obvious choice is normally Peter Whittingham but Miller has proved what a fantastic and experienced goalscorer he is.
Brian McDermott doesn't have any new injury worries, so is likely to name an unchanged XI for the third game in a row. Mathieu Manset and Brynjar Gunnarsson are still out with injuries.
The young central defender is getting better game by game and will certainly have his hands full with the likes of Whittingham and Miller.
Given our recent run of form, I think we could sneak a score draw. 1-1.
Cardiff - West Brom (A) - 7th January - FA Cup 3rd Round
Reading - Stevenage (H) - 7th January - FA Cup 3rd Round
