Reading host Middlesbrough in the Championship’s Saturday lunchtime kick off at the Madejski Stadium. After a slow start to the campaign, Reading have turned it on as of late. Veljko Paunovic’s team is unbeaten in three straight games with back-to-back matches ending in wins. The Royals are up to 14th in the Championship standings going into the weekend. They are just three points off of the top six in what is a crowded middle of the standings.
