Reading are ready to welcome Coventry City to Madejski Stadium on Monday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Royals are clearly on top, having won 13 and lost only 3 of the 22 games.
The previous match played between the two at Madejski Stadium was within the last three years, in January 2006, with Reading running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a Championship match.
