Meet the opposition

Reading have spent much of the season hanging around the lower echelons on the Sky Bet Championship and are currently just a place and a point above the drop zone. 

Ex-manager Paul Clement was shown the exit door back in December with the Royals in the same position as they are now.

Under current boss Jose Gomes, Reading have recorded five wins in 18 matches, with three of those coming in their last six games.

Gomes, 48, has a lengthy managerial CV which includes stints at clubs in his native Portugal, Saudi Arabia and Hungary.

The main source of goals for Reading this season has been Yakou Meite, with the Ivory Coast international netting eight so far.

Nelson Oliveira has scored three goals in seven games since joining on loan from Norwich City in January but he is ineligible to play in the fixture. 

Last time the two teams met was back in September when goals from Teemu Pukki and Mario Vrancic fired City to a 2-1 victory at the Madejski Stadium.
