The Whites have been on an impressive run of form as a whole, after taking just one point from their opening three league outings, although they did lose their last league game away at Brighton & Hove Albion on Friday night.

The visitors head to West Yorkshire on the back of five wins form their last six league games, and will be looking to close the gap on the top two by bringing all three points back to Berkshire.

The omens bode well for the home side tonight, having won two and drawn two of their last four meetings with the Royals.

Both sides will be looking for a win tonight, to set them up nicely for the hectic Christmas schedule ahead of them, and to gain a potential psychological edge over their opponents in the promotion race.
