Reading prepare to entertain Coventry City at Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Royals are clearly on top, having won 15 and lost only 3 of the 25 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Madejski Stadium was just last season, in December 2010, when they played out a goalless draw in a Championship match.
