Reading are ready to welcome Wigan Athletic to Madejski Stadium on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Royals are clearly on top, winning 62.50% of the games played between the two.
The previous match played between the two at Madejski Stadium was within the last three years, in November 2004, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Championship match.
