Reading vs Bristol City
Saturday 3rd November
3pm kick-off
Madejski Stadium
Sky Bet Championship

After two defeats on the road last week, the Royals have had a week to prepare for the challenge posed by Bristol City this weekend at Madejski Stadium.

Paul Clement's side have won two out of their last three matches on home soil in recent weeks, while the Robins have had mixed fortunes on the road so far this season, albeit earning a creditable 1-0 win at Brentford in their last match on their travels.

For the Royals, Clement confirmed that club captain Paul McShane is back in full training and could be in contention for a place, Callum Harriott will be pushing for a place in the squad and Mo Barrow will be available for selection again this weekend.

Lee Johnson's side have enjoyed a sturdy start to the season, sitting in mid-table with a third of Sky Bet Championship matches played - just three points outside the Play-Off places.

Summer signing, Andreas Weimann tops their goalscoring charts at the moment, with five goals so far this season. City's record signing, striker Famara Diédhiou didn't feature until September but has three goals to his name, despite his limited game time so far this term.

It's set to be another tight match in RG2 this weekend, and we need your support at Madejski Stadium as the Royals go in search of three more points in the Championship!
