Ahead of the game | Meeting the Millers

A preview of Reading's biggest match of the season so far

21 February 2019

It's all eyes on Madejski Stadium this weekend, with a massive game in store against one of Reading's main rivals against relegation.

Reading and Rotherham United are separated only by goal difference in the Championship table, either side of the dotted line as both sides are battling hard for survival this season.

And nothing could separate the teams in the reverse fixture back in December, with Joe Mattock's late equaliser ensuring a share of the points at the New York Stadium.

Both teams go into Saturday's match off the back of only one loss in their last five matches, with Paul Warne's men drawing each of their last four - although they suffered late heartache with a 100th-minute equaliser from Sheffield Wednesday's Fernando Forestieri last time out.

Rotherham are winless in 16 attempts at the home of the Royals, a run stretching all the way back to 1977. But the stakes have rarely been higher in a match that could prove pivotal in the fight for survival.
