Both of these sides go into the match this evening on the back of dropping points in their last fixtures.
Leeds were defeated by Brentford 2-0 in their first match under Darko Milanic, which followed a run of four games without defeat under former caretaker boss Neil Redfearn.
Reading drew their last game 3-3 against Wolves in a match that left Neil Adkins frustrated by the side’s defensive work.
However, that point came after two back-to-back defeats in the league and the League Cup with the side not winning away from home since the end of August against Middlesbrough.
A win for the home side this evening would put them onto 16 points and ahead of Reading on the table, while a win for the visitors would move them onto 17 points, which would push them closer to the play-off places.
