Blues Want Royals Revenge

Ipswich go searching for revenge at Reading and to secure their fourth game unbeaten at the same time.

Vital Quotes:

Blues boss Paul Jewell said: '"They have a good team at Reading. When you look at their side, they`ve got a number people who have been there for a number of seasons so they know that if they make a couple of changes.
'They lost Shane Long and Matt Mills in the summer - they`ve got players who seem to just slip into the team.
"That sort of stability and continuity is what we`re after."
Royals boss Brian McDermott said: 'They've won two and drawn one so are running into form - but we will just try to do our stuff at home, as we always do.
Ipswich is a big club with a good following and an experienced manager.
'They spent money in the summer, they'll be fine this season. They had a difficult run and I feel for any manager in that situation.'



Reading Team News:

Striker Mathieu Manset is still out with an injury, while Joseph Mills still has an ankle problem.
But Hal Robson-Kanu should be fit after a knock last week.

Player to watch: Noel Hunt

Ipswich Town Team News:

Grant Leadbitter is expected to skipper the side now Keith Andrews has gone back to Blackburn.
Jason Scotland is a big doubt with a hamstring pull so Jay Emmanuel-Thomas may start up front with Michael Chopra.
Ibrahima Sonko will start against his old club with Damien Delaney although Ivar Ingarmarsson is also in contention.
