History of the Reading v Leicester City fixture
Reading prepare to entertain Leicester City at Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning just 2 of the 9 games played, and losing 5.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Madejski Stadium was less than a year ago, in April 2011, with Reading running out comfortable 3-1 winners in a Championship match.
