There are nineteen points separating these two teams in the Championship and they could be two divisions apart next season! Forest are arguably playing like a Premier League team right now and created more chances when narrowly losing at Birmingham on Tuesday night. Nevertheless, Billy Davies will have been heartened by the way his team competed with one of the in-form top flight teams, citing a lack of cutting edge. The Tricky Trees are still seventeen games unbeaten in the league and have won their last four home matches.
Some of Reading‘s best performances have been on the road this season, with Wednesday‘s FA Cup win at Anfield proving the highlight of the campaign by a long way.

Caretaker manager Brian McDermott has done reasonably well to keep the Royals out of the relegation zone after the departure of Brendan Rodgers, although the team‘s recent 4-1 tonking at Plymouth already suggested that their defence is fallible away from home, despite their cup success. Best odds for the Nottingham Forest win is 1.72 at Blue Square.
