It's the last game of the Championship campaign as Birmingham take on Reading at St. Andrews. The Royals have already gauranteed the championship title, while Birmingham will be comepting in the play-offs, barring a mathematical miracle.
Birmingham manager Chris Houghton - 'It's the last game of the season and there's likely to be a big crowd and good atmosphere at home. Reading will be vocal and if you've got a vocal away crowd then a home crowd doesn't want to be outdone so I would expect our supporters to be very vocal as well.'
Reading boss Brian McDermott - 'The players don't need focusing, they know they want to go there, put on a performance and get the right result. The lads have proved what type of people they are over 45 games. This is a game to be enjoyed but every time you play your reputation is on the line so we will respect that. We've got more than 4,000 fans there and we owe it to them. They'll have a great day.'
Midfielder Guirane N'Daw could be back after picking up an injury aginst West Ham three weeks ago.
b>Jonathan Spector, Keith Fahey and Stephen Carr will all miss out, while Boaz Myhill is a doubt.
The former Watford striker has made a good impact wiht the Blues since joining last year, scoring 16 goals this term.
Reading could have winger Jimmy Kebe back for this game after resting him last week. Striker Jason Roberts is serving a suspension, so Adam le Fondre is likely to start for the first time in three months.
The prolific striker is likely to start this game due to Jason Roberts' suspension and will be keen to make a point from the start of the game, after failing to start a game since January.
Reading 1 - 0 Birmingham
The referee for this game will be Robert Madley.
Both teams will be up for the occasion, despite their future's gauranteed. 1-1 draw.
