Reading travel to take on Bristol City at Ashton Gate Stadium on Saturday afternoon, 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 last time the two teams met at Bristol City was back in March 2002, over five years ago, when they fought out a thrilling high-scoring 3 - 3 draw in a League Division Two match.
