Reading host Coventry City after a four-week World Cup break, with a bumper crowd expected at the SCL Stadium.

Here's everything you need to know.


Reading Chronicle:

Not enduring the best form, with just two wins in 10 matches before the break, Reading sit 13th in the Championship.

Despite not being in the best form, the team picked up a vital win ahead of the break with a last minute strike over Hull City.

Now, with a long break, it is a fresh start for sides up and down the country.

One team who will hope to continue where they left off is Coventry, who had won their last four on the bounce before the break.

Rising from the bottom three to the top half, Mark Robins' men now sit just two points outside the top six.

A hectic afternoon in RG2, almost 23,000 turned out for the club's 150th anniversary celebrations- but it turned into a nightmare.
