Scott Marshall takes caretaker charge of the Royals for the visit of the Blades on Saturday, with the Sky TV cameras in town for an evening kick-off under the lights at Madejski Stadium.

It's back to business on the pitch for Reading, after a late equaliser last time out against Stoke earned them a point at home in an entertaining 2-2 draw.

Speaking before the visit of Sheffield United, Wales international Gunter said: "We need to turn performances into more points, we're fully aware of that - there's no point in saying otherwise.

"It's another game this weekend against a team that's doing really well. I think in the last couple of weeks, playing against teams higher up in the league, we've performed quite well.

"With a bit of improvement in certain areas, maybe a little bit of luck too, we can get the three points and put a difficult week behind us.

"We've looked at Sheffield United and they play a different way compared to most teams - the way they set up and the things some of their players do.

"Generally, we played against them last year as a squad and I think we'll know stuff about them. As always, as boring as it sounds, it's about looking at them and making sure we do as well as we can - hopefully, that's enough for three points.

"It's a really busy time around Christmas and new year, there are lots of games and if you can put a good run together, it's a chance for us to move up the league and try to push on.

"No-one's satisfied or happy with where we are in the league, it hurts. We'll continue to work hard and believe in what we're doing.

"There will be a change now, we'll believe in that and hopefully over a busy time, we can pick up points in a short space of time and move up the league."
