The Royals get back to action in the first of a three-game week, heading to high-flying Brentford on Saturday afternoon.

After a fantastic start to the season, the Bees' performance has stuttered in the last couple of Championship matches - being held to a draw against Ipswich before a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Derby last weekend.

Dean Smith's side went to the Emirates in midweek, making seven changes as they went out of the Carabao Cup with a 3-1 loss against Arsenal on Wednesday night. They have since dropped to 7th in the Championship table - albeit sitting just three points off the top of the table at this early stage of the season.

Paul Clement's side have had more time to train, but they will be raring to go at Griffin Park in front of a sell-out away following on Saturday.

Around 1,600 Royals will be making the trip to London at the weekend to back the boys at Brentford, for information about visiting Griffin Park as a fan, click here for full information from Brentford's website.

Championship title sponsors, Sky Bet, make the hosts hefty favourites for the win on Saturday, with odds of 4/9 on a Brentford victory, with the Royals out at 6/1 for all three points. The draw is priced at 10/3.

After his 5th goal of the season last time out against Hull, Jón Daði Böðvarsson is priced at 8/1 to open the scoring at Griffin Park this weekend. Elsewhere, Mo Barrow is available at 10/3 to score any time against the Bees.
