Premier League Preview: Reading - QPR

Both sides are 10 points adrift of safety with four games left and could see their fate sealed if Aston Villa beats Sunderland on Monday, regardless of the result.

Royals goalkeeper Adam Federici is nearing a return after an ankle sprain, although this game may come slightly too soon for the Australian.

Jimmy Kebe (groin) has also been struggling with an injury, and is highly unlikely to play any part, while Hope Akpan (ankle) is nearing a return for Nigel Adkins’ side and may make the bench.

Rangers striker Bobby Zamora will serve the last game of his three-match ban after being sent off for violent conduct against Wigan.

Andros Townsend (hamstring) and Adel Taarabt (shoulder) both suffered injuries against Stoke but will be hopeful of making this game.

  • Reading has lost eight of its last nine games and has not won in the league since early February.
  • Royals midfielder Mikele Leigertwood (pictured right) played for QPR more than 130 times between 2007-2011.
  • If Aston Villa wins its game against Sunderland on Monday night, both of these clubs will be mathematically relegated.
  • The fixture between these sides earlier this season ended in a 1-1 draw, with Kaspars Gorkss’ opener cancelled out by a strike from Djibril Cisse.
  • QPR has won just four games this season, the lowest in the Premier League and one fewer than its opponents.
  • Before this season, Reading and QPR had never played each other in the top flight of English football.
  • As manager of QPR in the Premier League, Harry Redknapp has a worse win percentage than both Mark Hughes and Neil Warnock.
