Reading are ready to welcome Sheffield Wednesday to Madejski Stadium on Tuesday evening, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, beating their opponents 2 times from 5 games.
The previous match played between the two at Madejski Stadium was more than three years back, in August 2002, the Royals carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League Division One match.
