Reading v Derby Match preview

Reading will be playing for the first time in 23 days, with the Royals looking for more consistency. They lost out to West Brom in the last game they played and Veljko Paunovic would be desperate for a good run of form in January as the team looks to move away from the relegation zone.

Derby are at the bottom of the pile but the Rams’ position isn’t entirely their own fault. Had they not been docked 21 points, Wayne Rooney’s side would have been in 13th place. But it is what it is and after beating Blackpool, West Brom and Stoke, they still have hopes of surviving the drop.
