Reading vs Preston North End Match Preview

6 April 2018

There’s all to play for as we head into the final half dozen games of the season, with just three points covering the teams from sixth to tenth in the Championship table.

And for the Lilywhites that means they know that the next month could prove to be an exciting one, with some big games to come, starting against Reading, where it has been all change over the past month.

Jaap Stam, who last season led the Royals to the Play-Off Final, has departed the Madejski Stadium and former Swansea City and Derby County boss Paul Clement has taken up the hot seat and set about reforming the Berkshire side.

A change from the possession dominant football of the Dutchman has followed, with Clement initially looking to make his new charged hard to break down and hard to beat, so the Lilywhites know that a tough test faces them at the weekend.
