          Reading make the trip to Kassam Stadium for the early League One kick off this Saturday against Oxford United. The Us will be looking to make their way back into the Play-off fold whereas Reading need the three points to put some more room between themselves and the relegation zone.

James Tilley scored a goal in each half to give Wimbledon the 2 - 0 win over a ten-man Oxford, who had Simon Eastwood sent off late on. Back in League One, Oxford faced Carlisle. Mark Harris’ first goal gave Oxford the 1 - 0 lead at the break and he completed his brace in the second minute of the second half. Tyler Goodrham added a third and despite the late goal from Alfie McCalmont, Oxford held on for a 3 - 1 win.

          A Sam Long own goal in the 29th minute was the only goal of the game where Barnsley took home a big 1 - 0 win over Oxford. The next time out against Bristol Rovers saw The Gas take a 2 - 0 lead at halftime through goals from Chris Martin and Luke Thomas. Harris got Oxford into the game early in the second half, but a goal from Harvey Vale secured the 3 - 1 win for Rovers.

          The last time out for Oxford was against Portsmouth on Tuesday. Goodrham gave Oxford the lead just before halftime, but goals from Colby Bishop and Callum Lang gave Portsmouth the 2 - 1 lead. However, a 90th minute goal from James Henry gave Oxford the 2 - 2 draw.

          Reading, on the other hand, currently sit 21st in League One. In 28 games, Reading have eight wins, seven draws and 13 losses which leaves them on 27 points, just four points above the relegation zone.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Reading have two wins, one draw and two losses.

          Harvey Knibbs opened the scoring in the ninth minute for Reading but Zak Jules equalised for Exeter within ten minutes. An Alex Hartridge own goal then regained the lead for Reading before halftime, but Dion Rankine drew Exeter level before the 70 minute mark. However, Femi Azeez popped up with a goal to give Reading the 3 - 2 win. In the Third Round of the Football League Trophy, Reading took on Brighton’s U21 team. A goalless game saw the tie go to penalties, Caylan Vickers, Azeez and Tivonge Rushesha all missed giving Brighton the 3 - 2 win.

          Back in League One, Reading faced Wigan. Thelo Aasgaard scored the only goal of the game in the first half to give Wigan the 1 - 0 win. However, the next time out saw Reading on the right side of a 1 - 0 scoreline. Paul Mukairu grabbed all three points for Reading just after halftime, defeating Derby 1 - 0.

          The most recent outing for Reading was against Leyton Orient. A penalty from Dan Agyei gave Orient the lead but Knibbs equalised before halftime. Neither team could find another goal and had to settle for a 1 - 1 draw.
