Match Preview : Reading FC vs Liverpool FC

Reading manager Nigel Adkins: ““The momentum has gone the wrong way with our run of results but we saw last season with Reading that if you get the right momentum you can go the right way”

Team news: Jimmy Kebe is sidelined witha groin problem, while fellow midfielder Hope Akpan is a major doubt due to an ankle injury sustained in last Saturday 2-0 defeat by Southampton. Adkins said Reading have further niggles, but no other players are expected to be ruled out.

Reading (from): Federici, Taylor, Mariappa, Pearce, Shorey, Kelly, McAnuff, Leigertwood, Karacan, Robson-Kanu, McCleary, Hunt, Pogrebnyak, McCarthy, Gunter, Harte, Le Fondre, Morrison, Blackman.


Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers: “Reading will keep fighting and their supporters will get behind the team very well.”

Team news: Forward Raheem Sterling will be absent again as the club continue to manage the teenager’s thigh injury. Winger Stewart Downing, who played in last weekend’s goalless draw with West Ham despite illness, is now fully recovered.

Forward Fabio Borini and midfielder Joe Allen (both shoulder) are sidelined, as is defender Martin Kelly (knee).

Liverpool (from): Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Enrique, Lucas, Gerrard, Henderson, Sturridge, Coutinho, Suarez, Downing, Jones, Skrtel, Wisdom, Coates, Shelvey, Suso, Assaidi, Morgan.

  1. Thank you for sharing these kinds of wonderful content. In addition, the best travel and medical insurance strategy can often eradicate those issues that come with touring abroad. A medical emergency can in the near future become costly and that’s bound to quickly set a financial weight on the family’s finances. Setting up in place the great travel insurance offer prior to setting off is worth the time and effort. Thank you

  2. I’ve been surfing on-line greater than three hrs as of late, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful price enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just correct content material materials as you most likely did, the internet will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before. acne cyst
