But anything other than three points for the Royals will see Forest come up against Southampton on Saturday knowing they they may need to win.
"We're all Reading fans," on-loan Tottenham defender Gunter told Forest's official website. "We'll see how that game goes, if it goes to Sunday that's fine, it's in our own hands.
"If it does go to the last game what a brilliant way to stay up in front of a sell-out crowd.
"We're winning at home, picking stuff up away and we're in the driving seat. If it does go to next Sunday we need to make sure we get the job done."
