The Madejski 500

20 November 2017

While Bolton Wanderers currently sit near the foot of the Championship table, their form under former Royal, Phil Parkinson, has picked up of late, having gone unbeaten in their last six matches.

The Royals, meanwhile, will take heart from a performance filled with potential against Wolves on Saturday afternoon, despite being on the wrong end of the result on the day.

Victory for the home side could take them out of the bottom three, while a win for the Royals would make it a third win in four matches for Jaap Stam and his side.

Reading have been buoyed by the return to fitness of strikers Yann Kermorgant and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson after injury, with both looking to get more match minutes under their belts.

With the games coming thick and fast in the Championship, the Royals will hope to leave the Macron Stadium with three more important points as they hope to gain momentum in the league this season. 



Supporters' Trust at Reading (STAR) offer travel to all away games, details of which can be found by following the link here.
