Centre-back looks ahead to tough test against Tricky Trees

For the second time in 11 days, Nottingham Forest will be Reading's opponents in the Sky Bet Championship. It was a frantic end to the first encounter at Madejski Stadium last weekend, and Reading will be hoping to turn one point into three when they leave The City Ground late on Wednesday night.

Michael Morrison believes the Royals can do just that on Wednesday, with a hectic run of fixtures still to be played in January.

Saturday saw Reading's first defeat since the start of December at the hands of Millwall, but the squad are gearing up to go again in midweek in their game in hand against fifth-placed Forest.

"The games are coming thick and fast," Morrison said. "We've got the game on Wednesday, then the cup, then Bristol after that. That's the Championship, you've got to dust yourself down and be ready to go again.

"We've got a little bit of an advantage because Forest played on Sunday, hopefully we can use that and go into the game to try and win.

"We've had some tough games recently, especially away from home. Millwall was a tough day, but we've gone and got points from Preston and Fulham.

"We'll fancy ourselves on any day, as long as we all put in that commitment that we always do, especially recently. We've got quality, and against Millwall it probably didn't shine through as much as we'd like, but I'm sure it will on Wednesday.

"It was a great turnout from our fans at the weekend, they filled that top end and it was really pleasing. Unfortunately, we couldn't give them the three points.

"I know it's a bit of a corner position at Forest for them, but hopefully we can get some goals in that corner and get close to the fans."
