Difficult game. Be lucky to get much from this one given Brentford have won their last three games and have only lost once in ten. And when you add to that the failure to beat a poor Stoke and give away cheap goals at Derby then the levels of expectation aren’t going to be great.
Note the great kick off time for those that have to be in work on Tuesday.

Brentford are one of the most common opponents for Reading with this game being the 88th time the clubs will have met in the league. Of the 42 league games played in Reading to date there have been 24 wins for the hoops compared to just 9 for the stripes.
However if you think that makes for an easy game then you might be in for a rude awakening as Brentford have won on four of their last six league visits, have scored at least two in four of those games and once in each of the others so not even a clean sheet has been kept by Reading in that time.
