Reading remain on the unwanted list of five Championship teams yet to win a league match in 2023.

Having played five times since the New Year, opening 2023 with a 1-0 defeat to West Brom, the club have since drawn two and lost two.

On Saturday, the form was extended to one win in nine after a narrow 1-0 loss to Sunderland on Wearside.

The club's only win of any kind in 2023 has been the 2-0 victory over Watford in the FA Cup third round.

Blackpool, Huddersfield Town, Cardiff City and Queens Park Rangers complete the list of out-of-form second tier sides- all of which sit in the bottom eight of the Championship.

The Tangerines and Bluebirds are Royal opponents over the next fortnight, with Paul Ince's side 10 points clear of the relegation zone and somehow still only eight outside the play-offs.

Rotherham United, who have won once since the turn of the year, are the next opponents- visiting RG2 on Valentine's Day.
