Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Reading
Sky Bet Championship
7.45pm kick-off

After an entertaining encounter against Leeds United at the weekend, up next for the Royals will be Championship leaders, Wolves, at Molineux on Tuesday night.

The hosts have seen their bulldozing form slow down of late, with just one win in five matches prior to the Royals' visit in midweek.

Jaap Stam's side will take encouragement following a couple of home draws that have seen the Royals show the kind of character and resilience that will be vital at Molineux against the table-toppers.

Top scorer Jón Daði Böðvarsson and midfielder Dave Edwards will be returning to the club from which they both joined Reading - Edwards' first game back at Wolves following a nine-and-a-half year spell at the club.

Reading will be going all out for three points against Nuno Espirito Santo's side on Tuesday, as we aim to get ourselves further clear of the Championship's bottom three.
