Veljko Paunović’s outfit have enjoyed a strong start to the campaign. They currently sit joint second on 27 points, level with Bournemouth, Watford and Bristol City.
The Royals have, however, been stuck in a very poor run of form of late. They have just one win in their last six.
They have lost three times and drawn twice in that spell. And one of those draws came at Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday evening.
Callum Paterson put the hosts in front, but they were soon reduced to ten men after Liam Shaw saw red just 30 minutes into the game.
Reading capitalised before half time as Lucas Joao found the net, but they couldn’t inflict further damage on the Owls, with the game finishing 1-1.
Nottingham Forest meanwhile sit 21st after an extremely disappointing start to the new season. With three wins to their name, they sit just three points above the relegation zone.
Forest are, however, on a better run of form than their upcoming opponents. They have two wins from their last six, and picked up an impressive draw against high-flying Watford on Wednesday evening.
Chris Hughton’s men will, therefore, have at least some confidence going into Saturday’s early kick-off.
But Reading remain favourites at 17/12 to pick up a win.
Forest can be backed at 23/10 to leave with all three points.
And a draw has been given odds of 9/4. A stalemate is certainly an option, with the sides drawing 1-1 in both their meetings last season.
Incredibly, both goals were scored in added time in the first meeting. Ben Watson thought he had won it for his side in the 96th minute, only for Tobias Figueiredo to score an own goal a minute later.
And it was another late showing in the reverse fixture at the City Ground. Forest once again went ahead through Lewis Grabban in the 80th minute, with Sam Baldock netting the equaliser three minutes later.
A third successive 1-1 draw between the two clubs can be backed at 15/2.
