Premier League: Reading v Fulham match preview
A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at The Madejski Stadium
Friday 26 October 2012
Reading are still searching for their first win in the league this season and welcome Fulham to the Madejski stadium on Saturday.
Brian McDermott's team have amassed just three points from a possible 21 in the top flight and only Queens Park Rangers are below The Royals in the table.
Fulham will be hoping to improve their away form, having lost two of their four away league games this season.
KICK-OFF: Saturday, 3pm
PAST THREE MEETINGS…
Reading 0 Fulham 2 (McBride, Nevland), Premier League, April 2008
Fulham 3 (Davies, Dempsey, Healy) Reading 1 (Doyle), Premier League, November 2007
Reading 1 (Hunt) Fulham 0 Premier League, April 2007
A win for either side could ultimately be worth six points as in the last three seasons where the sides have met, they have went on to do the double on each other
Fulham have conceded nine goals in their four away matches
Reading were relegated on the final day of the 07/08 campaign despite hammering Derby County 4-0 at Pride Park as Fulham stayed up in their place with a 1-0 win at Portsmouth courtesy of a solitary Danny Murphy goal.
Reading to win: 2.70
Fulham to win: 2.45
