Coventry (H) Match Preview

After Reading's away game against Doncaster was cancelled last week, they come into the game against bottom side Coventry with a two-week break. Despite snow falling in Berkshire last night, the game is due to go ahead.

Vital Quotes:

Reading manager Brian McDermott - 'Look at the squad, in the last 22 games we're top of the league. We took four points from the first 18 available, but we're top of the league since then. We're going in the right direction, The boys are doing really well.

Coventry boss Andy Thorn -
"If there`s any blame to be apportioned give it to me, not the players. When you`re in bad situations it`s always very easy to start pointing fingers because everybody wants to blame everybody else. But I won`t let that happen to our group.

Reading Team News:

Reading have said that winger Jimmy Kebe will be fit to play after recovering from a knee problem. Midfielder Mikele Leigertwood is close to full fitness, but has probably come to soon for him.

Player to watch: Jimmy Kebe

The winger is set to play his first game since signing a new deal and will be raring to go to try and win back the Royals fans who doubted his commitment.

Coventry Team News:

The visitors have many injury problems with defenders Hermann Hreidarsson, Chris Hussey and Cyrus Christie with stiker Cody McDonald struggling with a knee problem.

Player to watch: Gary McSheffery

The left-footed maestro has fantastic ability and will be crucial in trying to save Coventry's season.

Reverse Fixture:

Coventry 1 - 1 Reading

McSheffery (5) Church (10)

Coventry are low on confidence at the moment but will still prove a threat. 2-0 win.
