Reading will be looking to maintain their unbeaten run as they travel to the English capital to face Queens Park Rangers this evening, eager to impress in front of the Sky Sports cameras. Paul Ince’s side performed admirably against Norwich City in midweek – and will take plenty of confidence from that game against Dean Smith’s men considering they deserved to win three points against the Canaries.
The west London outfit have started the season very well – and this evening’s assignment will be a tough one for the visitors who could go top of the table with a victory. QPR, meanwhile, will overtake the Royals if they claim three points. This looks set to be an excellent occasion – and ahead of kick-off – we have some facts and thoughts for you!
Queens Park Rangers:
At the time of writing, it’s currently unclear whether Chris Willock or Seny Dieng will be available, so it will be interesting to see whether they will be fit for the hosts in time for this clash. Both are key players for Beale’s side, especially Willock who has been an exceptional signing for the club since his arrival in the English capital, establishing himself as a key midfielder alongside Ilias Chair.
What a performance on Tuesday! Considering the strength of the Canaries, many people were expecting us to come out of that game with no points to our name. But we fought bravely, were threatening going forward and defended reasonably well too, arguably making us worthy of the three points.
It wasn’t meant to be in the end – but that will only make us hungrier for a win this evening and if we can keep things tight at the back, there’s every chance we could get something from this tough clash.
