Reading boss Noel Hunt has dubbed Monday's trip to Huddersfield Town 'do or die', but it might be dead before they get a chance.

The Terriers play their game in hand against already-promoted Sheffield United tomorrow, and anything but a win for the Blades will officially relegate the Royals to League One.

With their fate now out of their own hands, supporters and staff alike face a nervy wait for results from South Yorkshire.

Reading Chronicle:

Speaking ahead of Monday's clash, Hunt said: "We’re in a waiting game now. We’ve got to wait for tomorrow night, we’ll be watching the game no doubt. This week has been about getting the boys back on the grass enjoying their football and keep smiles on faces and the hopes up. Everyone is waiting for tomorrow night to see what happens.

"It's black and white, we’ll know on Thursday night come 10 what’s happening. Then it’s down to that result what the mindset is for the next few days. For us, we’re hoping for the best possible outcome and that we can go there. It’s do or die."

Reading are without a win in 12 matches, and have not won on their travels since November as poor form, and a six point penalty, has dragged them toward the third tier for the first time since 2002.
