Ipswich go searching for revenge at Reading and to secure their fourth game unbeaten at the same time.
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.'
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.
Enjoys scoring against Ipswich
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.
Time for the former Arsenal protege to sparkle
Reading have won six in seven and their last three in a row.
Confidence is high with Ipswich but Reading are in good form, especially at home so I expect a 1-1
