Reading face a trip to Bristol City at Ashton Gate Stadium on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Royals will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2009, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Championship match.
