Defender Ian Harte hopes to turn the Madejski Stadium into a fortress as Reading look to mount a promotion challenge this term.
The Royals, who welcome Swansea on Saturday, have won their last three matches on home soil and Harte is keen for that record to continue.
"It's important to make the stadium a fortress and have teams not fancy coming here," he told the club's official website.
"If we can go out like we have in the the previous three at home, I'm sure we'll come away with the win.
"At home it's important we go out there, give 100% and get the results to take us up the table."
