In quotes
Royals boss Nigel Adkins: "The players' mind-set has been good throughout the week, we’ve had some honest conversations. We’ve got to go out there with a kick up the backside from last week."

Reading winger Garath McCleary: "I’m sure it will be a very good game on Saturday against a team that are right up there looking to get back to the Premier League like us."

QPR goalkeeper Rob Green: "Reading will be looking to react. They are always strong at home. It’s another tough game but this league is full of them."

Rangers midfielder Gary O'Neil: “I expected Reading to be up there at the end of the season and even after that (Sheff Weds) defeat they are fifth. They are good at home so it will be a tough match."
