Reading take their second trip to South Yorkshire of the season, hoping to avenge their humiliating 4-0 defeat to Rotherham United with a positive performance against Sheffield United.

Here’s what you need to know about tomorrow's match-up.

Reading Chronicle:


Bouncing back incredibly well from the defeat to the Millers, Paul Ince's side have won three on the bounce without conceding, sitting pretty on the top of the Championship table after six matches.

Beating Millwall 1-0 on Saturday, the Royals' first away win of the season and a first win at the Den since 2014, the idea of heading to Bramall Lane to face second-place Blades is slightly less daunting.

Paul Heckingbottom's men have not lost since the opening day and are just a point behind Reading, drawing on Saturday to Luton Town.

Slowly returning back to a squad with depth, wing-back Nesta Guinness-Walker returned to the squad on Saturday after a spell on the sidelines.

Defender Sam Hutchinson suffered a broken nose against the Lions, but that is unlikley to keep him out.

Scott Dann is thought to be the next to make it into a matchday squad, although unlikely to be at Bramall Lane.

Six stars are thought to be out for the hosts, with the likes of Jayden Bogle, Rhys Norrington-Davies and Enda Stevens among those on the treatment table.

Last Time Out: Sheffield United 1-2 Reading, April 15 2022

Previously unbeaten at home under Heckingbottom, relegation-threatened Reading turned up and flipped the form book on its head.

Taking a deserved early lead through Lucas Joao, Ovie Ejaria had a great opportunity to make it two but struck the post.

With the clock hitting 90 minutes, a Tom McIntyre header was flicked toward his own box and Iliman Ndiaye slammed past Orjan Nyland.

Not done there though, a free-kick was floated into the box and McIntyre got onto the end of a Tom Holmes touch to tap past Wes Foderingham and earn a shock win in the Steel City.

A thrilling 4-4 draw waith Swansea City followed, and the Royals confirmed Championship survival later in the month.
