Match Preview

Khizanishvili missing for Royals Reading will be without defender Zurab Khizanishvili for the visit of Ipswich. The on-loan Blackburn man was sent off during the 3-0 win over Barnsley on Saturday for a second bookable offence and will serve a one-match ban. Alex Pearce will return in his place with the Royals looking for another home win. Midfielder Brian Howard is also sidelined through suspension as he sits out the second of his three-game ban. Jay Tabb's ankle injury rules him out, while the game is likely to come too soon for Andy Griffin and Julian Kelly as both continue to recover from hamstring injuries. Ivar Ingimarsson could be fit enough to take his place on the bench and Chris Armstrong, who made his first start in a year on Saturday after recovering from a serious knee injury, could again play. Ipswich manager Roy Keane must decide whether to keep faith with teenage striker Connor Wickham The 17-year-old gave the ball away in the build up to Scunthorpe's opener on Saturday and was immediately replaced by Keane as he switched to 4-1-4-1 after just 32 minutes. Wickham could be back on the bench at the Madejski as midfielder Luke Hyam was impressive after replacing him. Jaime Peters will also be hoping for a recall at right-back after the Canadian came off the bench to score the equaliser at Glanford Park. Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore was an unused substitute on Saturday and will be hoping for his Town debut but Luciano Civelli will be absent again as he continues to recover from a serious knee injury.

Match Report

Royals leave it late to sink Ipswich Simon Church struck the winner barely 20 seconds after stepping off the bench as Reading edged out Ipswich to climb into the npower Championship play-off places. The game looked to be heading for stalemate after both sides had been reduced to 10 men early in the second half, Luke Hyam and Royals skipper Matt Mills seeing red. But striker Church, only brought on after a late injury to Hal Robson-Kanu, was in the right place at the right time to seal maximum points for the hosts. Reading went into the game on a high after their 3-0 defeat against Barnsley at the weekend. Royals boss Brian McDermott made one other change with Robson-Kanu making his first league start in place of Church. Town boss Roy Keane started with Connor Wickham on the bench after taking the highly-rated striker off before the break in the 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe on Saturday. His replacement Hyam was handed the start. Keane's men started with intent, youngster Andros Townsend letting fly in the opening seconds but his effort was never on target. It was a scrappy opening but Robson-Kanu had some joy running at the visitors' defence, beating a couple of men before delivering a dangerous ball into the box that Ipswich keeper Marton Fulop did not look comfortable with but got enough on to clear. The first real chance of the game fell to Ipswich as striker Jason Scotland outmuscled Reading defender Matt Mills but, with all the goal to aim at, fired wide of Adam Federici's post. The hosts rallied and another good Robson-Kanu centre found Jimmy Kebe - via Shane Long - who also fired wide, while Jem Karacan's header failed to trouble Fulop. Hyam was shown a yellow card for bringing down Long and Fulop looked shaky with another high ball - which with better control would have been punished by Robson-Kanu. Mills followed Hyam into the book after impeding Townsend as a largely disappointing half limped to a close. Ipswich began the second period well but were rocked in the 52nd minute when Hyam was shown a second yellow card for kicking the ball away after Carlos Edwards had fouled Robson-Kanu. Mills headed into Fulop's arms as the hosts looked to make their advantage count before Keane made a double substitution in the 56th minute, Wickham and Reggie Lambe coming on for Scotland and Edwards. The numbers were evened up three minutes later when skipper Mills was sent off after a body check on Townsend but the game needed a goal. Long headed weakly into the arms of Fulop and McDermott made his first change, replacing Kebe with Michail Antonio and he almost made an instant impact, setting up Karacan who drew a good stop out of Fulop. Jake Livermore was thrown into the fray for Townsend and had a go from 20 yards out but in keeping with the game it missed the target. Robson-Kanu went off with four minutes after taking a knock and the enforced change turned out to be inspired. Harte swung over a corner that was struck goalwards by Karacan where Church, on the field for less than a minute, diverted it home. The Royals were forced to finish the game with nine men after Karacan was injured in the build-up to the goal but they held on for the points.
