Match Preview

Skuse worry for Robins Cole Skuse is a doubt for Bristol City ahead of the visit of Reading. Skuse was the only absentee from training on Monday after the midfielder limped off in the closing stages of the defeat at Cardiff. The Robins have yet to win at Ashton Gate this season and boss Keith Millen will change their matchday routine on Tuesday in the hope it will bring them that elusive home victory. "We are going to change it slightly, we are going to come and do some training before the game to change our preparations," said Millen. "It is something we did last season and it will give us another chance to prepare and see who is fit and flying." Reading midfielder Brian Howard is pushing for a recall. Howard returned from suspension for the home defeat to Swansea at the weekend but was an unused substitute and will hope to earn his place back in Brian McDermott`s side. Left-back Chris Armstrong has been playing in the centre of midfield since returning from a knee operation but could stand down. Winger Hal Robson-Kanu was fit to start at the weekend after a knee problem while Icelandic midfielder Brynjar Gunnarsson will again miss out through a hamstring injury. Former Coventry midfielder Jay Tabb is also available for selection after recovering from the foot injury which has restricted him to just 151 minutes of first team football for the Royals this season.

Match Report

Robins win but remain bottom Bristol City eased the pressure on manager Keith Millen with a 1-0 win against Reading but it was not enough to lift them off the foot of the Championship table. The Robins went into the game with only one league win to their name this term but a first-half strike from Danny Haynes was enough to see them home. They had former England goalkeeper David James to thank in part, frustrating the visitors all night and in particular with a fantastic second-half stop to deny Royals frontman Noel Hunt. Cole Skuse was ruled out for the hosts with a heel problem after limping out of the weekend defeat at Cardiff so Lee Johnson slotted into the centre of midfield alongside Marvin Elliott. Jamal Campbell-Ryce was preferred to Danny Rose on the wing as Millen looked for a first home win of the season and only a second of the campaign so far. The visitors, looking to move into the play-off places with a victory, brought in Hunt for his first start in over a year with Hal Robson-Kanu dropping to the bench. The Royals travelled in confidence after losing just one of their five away league games this term and Shane Long showed good pace early on but his ball for Hunt, when in a bit of space, was poor. City almost went ahead in the third minute when Albert Adomah's solo run and cross found Jon Stead but his powerful strike came back off the underside of the bar with Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici beaten. Stead went close again 10 minutes later with Stead again a menace, turning inside Ian Harte before forcing Federici to tip the ball round his post. Both sides looked up for the fight but it was City who edged ahead in the 28th minute. A ball to the far post was headed back across goal by Adomah where Stead saw an ambitious overhead kick blocked by Matt Mills, but the ball fell kindly for Haynes to hammer home a half-volley for his first goal of the season. Long tried his luck with a fine effort from range as the Royals looked for a way back into the game but his effort was too high while Jimmy Kebe forced City keeper James to parry before the break after a slick attack from the away side. James was called upon early in the second half and showed the class that made him England's number one. The Royals strung together a series of passes before Andy Griffin sent over a great cross for Hunt, who headed goalwards, but James produced a fantastic stop to tip the ball to safety. Adomah was centimetres away from levelling and Reading boss Brian McDermott made his first change by bringing on Brian Howard for Harte on the hour. James saved from Karacan as McDermott's men started to turn the screw but Steve Caulker had a chance at the far post for the Robins but headed wide at the far post. Robson-Kanu and Simon Church had been thrown into the fray in the hunt for the leveller while Millen shored up his midfield by throwing Kalifa Cisse into the fray, Rose also replacing Campbell-Ryce. Reading continued to press, Jobi McAnuff's effort being blocked, while he could only send a free header straight at James. Karacan hurled another long-range effort at James in added time but City held on.
