After one win in four, Reading will be looking to claim victory against bottom side Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday night.

After a defeat at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday to Middlesbrough, a game against a team fighting relegation is the perfect team to play at this moment in time.

The Chairboys are 11 points adrift, winning only one game in their last eight as they seek a second season in the second tier for the first time ever.

Team news

Garath McCleary and Jordan Obita are set to start against the club that released them last summer, whilst Ryan Allsop is set to miss his second game in a row, with David Stockdale to keep his spot in goal.

Reading are still without Felipe Araruna, while John Swift and Yakou Meite are unavailable for a long time.

Predicted lineups

Wycombe:

Stockdale; Grimmer, Tafazolli, Stewart, Obita, Wheeler, Mehmeti, Knight, McCleary, Onyedinma, Ikpeazu.

Reading:

Rafael; Yiadom, Morrison, McIntyre, Richards, Laurent, Rinomhota, Esteves, Olise, Ejaria, Joao.

Ones to watch

Uche Ikpeazu

His sheer brute strength and physicality makes him one of the strongest players in the division, providing a bigh challenge for defenders.

Lucas Joao

The Portuguese man has been electrifying this season, scoring 17 goals in the Championship. He has struggled with injury in the past hindering his development, but a mostly injury-free season has resulted in brilliant numbers.

Previous meetings

The last time these two sides met was earlier in the season when Lucas Joao scored the only goal to separate them in a 1-0 win for the Royals.

How to watch

This match will kick off at 19:45 GMT on Tuesday, February 23, and is available to watch by purchasing an iFollow pass for £10, or on Sky Sports Red Button.
