History of the Reading v Leicester City fixture

Reading are ready to welcome Leicester City to Madejski Stadium on Monday evening, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, beating their opponents 1 times from 7 games.

The previous match played between the two at Madejski Stadium was more than three years back, in December 2005, with Reading running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a Championship match.
