Ipswich Town vs. Reading

Portman Road



Blues Face Right Royal test

After a dodgy period Reading are on a roll and won the earlier meeting this season 2-1 at the Madejski Stadium in August.

Ipswich have not won any of their last six games in all competitions, losing the last three. Their only win since early December was 3-0 at Doncaster in the Championship on Boxing Day.

Ipswich have the worst record in the Championship this season after scoring first, but the best record after conceding first.
Ipswich have not won any of their last four games at home in all competitions, drawing three and losing one. Their last win at Portman Road was 2-1 against Huddersfield in the Championship in early December.

Meanwhile, Reading won their last game 7-1 against Bolton in the Championship last weekend. It is their biggest win since they beat Peterborough 6-0 in the Championship in April 2010.
Reading have won their last two games. They had lost four of their previous five games in all competitions, drawing one.

Their 7-1 victory over Bolton was the first time they have scored more than one goal in a game in all competitions since late November.
