The Reading boss Veljko Paunović will be thankful to have no fitness concerns at all coming into this clash with a fully healthy group ready to go.
Team News: QPR
Thanks to a mainly healthy group, there is only the sole fitness problem for the QPR boss Mark Warburton to be concerned about. Sam Field (Knee Surgery) won’t be in action.
We’ve got the feeling that Reading might well have a job on their hands to put one past this Queens Park Rangers lineup who we reckon should score at least once to gain the upper hand.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a narrow 0-1 winning score for Queens Park Rangers at the end of the match.
