Reading vs QPR at 3pm on beIN Sport. It’s the Championship with 9th-place Reading hosting 12th-place QPR.

Reading is currently linked with USMNT and LA Galaxy player Gyasi Zardes.
“It’s the start of December and there are lots of games to go,” Reading manager Steve Clark said. “All we’re looking for is to get back to winning ways and to what we did well earlier this season. It’s not so long ago – about eight weeks ago people were saying what a fantastic team we were and things were going in the right direction, so we have to get back to that. We defended well as a team and everyone was working hard to stop the opposition getting shots away – we didn’t concede many shots on goal earlier in the season. Now we’re conceding more shots. Not a terrible amount, but a lot of them seem to be ending up in the back of our net at the moment.”
