Reading pack their bags to visit Nottingham Forest at City Ground on Sunday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Royals will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 7 and win only 3 of the 13 games.
The previous match played between the two at City Ground was more than three years back, in November 2004, the Forest carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Championship match.
