Ahead of the game | Baggies in Berkshire on Easter Monday

All you need to know as West Brom come to town

21 April 2019

After a hard-earned point on the road on Friday, attention now turns to an Easter Monday encounter against the Baggies.

Reading vs West Bromwich Albion
3pm kick-off

Monday 22nd April
Madejski Stadium
Sky Bet Championship

José Gomes and his Reading side will have taken plenty of heart after they went a third game unbeaten on Good Friday, with a deserved point away at Bristol City.

Yakou Méïté opened the scoring with his fifth goal in as many matches, with the striker in red-hot form in a Reading shirt.

Time waits for no-one, however, and West Brom will be Reading's next opponents on Easter Monday. The Baggies have been in and around the promotion picture in the Championship all season, as they look to bounce straight back into the Premier League.

Caretaker boss, James Shan, has been handed the reins at The Hawthorns until the end of the season, with West Brom already well in the hunt for an immediate escape from the second tier.

Their front pair, Jay Rodriguez and Dwight Gayle, already have more than 40 goals between them this season, making them one of the most potent strikeforces in the second tier.

Reading, meanwhile, are in excellent home form, with five wins out of eight and showing plenty of fight for the shirt as the season reaches the business end.
