Pre-match talk
Royals manager Nigel Adkins: "Elland Road is a fantastic place to go to, really passionate supporters, top drawer supporters who get behind the team and we know it’s going to be a really tough place to play."

Reading defender Michael Hector: "There are a lot of good games coming up, hopefully I can keep my place and keep showing the manager what I can do.”

Leeds manager Brian McDermott: “Reading have done well over a period of time. They’ve had a couple of promotions and they are in the top six again. They have got a good manager and I think they have only had five managers in the last 13 years."
