The Opposition's Manager - Paul Ince

We should be delighted with a draw but after this weekend expectations will be for the win.

We performed well against Reading at home last season but lost 1-0. We went to their place after getting stuffed by the Jacks and came away with a 2-1 win. You just never know in the championship. Both those games we were lacking a lot of confidence. Its going to be a bit different with us having a lot for of the stuff come Saturday.

0-2 bluebirds my prediction.

We will we a lot more of the ball than we did against Norwich and have a lot more shots due to being able to create a few more chances. Sawyers will shine as he tries to break down the reading defence.
One of the winger to get a goal and also watters to get one too.
Watters will look a lot better this game with more service up to him, we will then conclude watters needs to learn how to do more against the bigger teams and get involved in the game, I think he will do well atm against teams we have more possession against

Obviously after Norwich I am hoping for another win,we are an unknown quantity for all our opponents now until we have played them at least once.
Hopefully this will work in our favour and we can pick up quite a few wins relatively quickly.
Come on Bloooobirds another 3 points please.

I've been caught up in the hype after our win over Norwich and in my head we are taking 3 points against Reading and Birmingham which will put us 3 wins in 3.

Although this is Cardiff City so it could all come crashing down and we could very easily lose both :lol:

I made it known that I thought we would win against Norwich, and Reading would lose at Blackpool.

This gives us a great opportunity to build on a very good opening day win, but this is Cardiff City, and I just think the high expectation will go against us this weekend.

I sincerely hope Im wrong, and will be happy to be proved wrong, but...

Royals 1-0 Cardiff City

Cardiff win 2-1. Think we will concede from a set-piece, think that will become a weakness of ours defensively.

But overall, we will dominate midfield. As long as we get runners into the box we will get goals.

As Steve Morison has virtually a fully fit squad , Paul Inces squad is depleted with injuries.
Up to 7 players will be missing for the game against the Bluebirds tomorrow.




Paul Ince has issued an injury update on his Reading FC players ahead of the first home game of the season against Cardiff City at the Select Car Leasing Stadium on Saturday after the defeat last Saturday.


Reading FC defenders Sam Hutchinson and Scott Dann have stepped up their recoveries from injury as they aim to make a first-team return in the coming weeks.

The pair missed the Championship opener away at Blackpool last Saturday and will not be involved in this weekend's game at home to Cardiff City.



Boss Paul Ince said are both back in training, although they are not expected to return imminently. Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Thursday morning ahead of the Cardiff fixture, the manager said although four of the next five games in league and cup are at home, not having a fully fit squad means expectations should not be too high.

"With injuries and not having a full squad, it's hard to build momentum," he explained. "When I first came in, we picked up results and went unbeaten for about six or seven games and that's the type of stuff you want but you can only really do that when you've got a full squad. You're asking these players to play Saturday, Tuesday consistently - the same players - which is tough. But hopefully, we'll get some more people coming back.


"Scott Dann and Sam Hutchinson are back on the training ground. Lucas Joao is another couple of weeks [away] and Dejan Tetek is still injured and back in a week. Hopefully, by the end of the transfer window I'll be looking forward to getting on a run and having options to choose from."

Bookies favouring a draw then a Reading win. Reading their forum, their all predicting a Cardiff win and our win v Norwich has been duly noted given we pretty much have had a complete squad overhaul in record time. They have big injury concerns too. Looking forward to tomorrow to see if we can build on last week. I wonder if Etete has clearance to play as I'd like to see what he's about. I'd also like to see how Colwill does in this new side as I've got a very good feeling about that too.

I hope people don’t jump on me for this but imo I’m not sure RC currently fits into the first 11. Think he needs to work on his play without the ball for that.

Not at all, I always respect opinions as you often learn from looking at something from a different viewpoint. The reason I say it as I read an interesting piece in the week about our CF issues and it said the Colwill may do well in a more advanced role, which I found interesting. Whichever, I think he'll do very well with this new squad and progressive system.

What’s the latest team news?



Perry Ng is out for City after picking up a red card last week against Norwich City. Apart from that, Cardiff don't have any changes.

It means Ebou Adams, Rubin Colwill and Isaak Davies won't feature, but others will be pushing for a spot in the squad. New signings Kion Etete and Jaden Philogene will no doubt be hopeful of making their first appearances for the club.

Reading will have seven players missing for the clash. Lucas Joao, Sam Hutchinson, Scott Dann, Femi Azeez, Dejan Tetek, George Puscas and Liam Moore will all be absent.

Match facts:



Reading lost their last league game against Cardiff in April, having gone 10 games in a row without defeat against them between 2016 and 2021 (W5 D5).


Following a 2-1 win at the Madejski Stadium last season, Cardiff are looking to win consecutive away league games against the Royals for the first time since September 2001.



Reading have lost their last four league games in a row, failing to score in each defeat. The Royals last lost five consecutive league matches without netting a goal in March 1998.



Cardiff have won their last two games in the Championship, despite only attempting a total of six shots across the two (1-0 v Derby and Norwich, three in each). The last time they won three in a row in the league without conceding a goal was in December 2020, under Neil Harris.



Cardiff manager Steve Morison is looking to win three consecutive league games for only the second time as Bluebirds boss (also February 2022), while he is looking to register three consecutive league shutouts for the first time.

It's great to have such depth to the team that 10 players miss out!

Will be great for competition

Tanner, Adams, Colwill, Vontae-Campbell, Bagan, McGuiness, Ng, Luthra, Davies, King all miss out!

Inside the stadium now and Bluebird atmosphere building nicely on a sunny day...

Players out warming up and looking focussed but taking time acknowledge the full away end... :clap: :ayatollah:
