Recent respective form guides

Queens Park Rangers's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Rangers have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Reading's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Royals have hit 7 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Queens Park Rangers find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 9 games have yielded only 3 points.

Reading are stuck down in the relegation zone of Barclays Premier League with a return of just 4 points from their 8 games thus far.
