Ahead of the game | Brentford make beeline for RG2

Bees next up for Royals at Madejski Stadium

12 April 2019

After the highs and lows everyone experienced at Carrow Road on Wednesday night, there is barely time to get your breath back before the Royals go again on Saturday.

Reading vs Brentford
Saturday 13th April
3pm kick-off
Sky Bet Championship
Madejski Stadium

After a topsy-turvy evening against the league leaders, Brentford will present an altogether different task in front of the home crowd at Madejski Stadium.

The Bees are all but mathematically safe in the Championship standings, with an 11-point gap between themselves and the Play-Offs that is unlikely to be breached.

As such, José Gomes and his side are preparing to face a side that will be playing with freedom, in particular in front of goal. Top scorer, Neal Maupay notched his 25th goal of the season in midweek as Thomas Frank's men overcame bottom side, Ipswich with a comfortable 2-0 win at Griffin Park.

As for the Royals, they will be hoping to take confidence from a hard-earned point away at the league leaders - who had won each of their last eight Championship matches heading into that game.

Andy Rinomhota's first senior goal sent the travelling Royals home with smiles on their faces, with the home support hoping for a similar feeling come 5pm on Saturday evening.
