Dougie Freedman is fast becoming one of the young managers to watch out for in the UK.

Crystal Palace are 4th in the table after their fast start to the season, and they are only 4 points behind Southampton at the top of the pile. The Eagles have a solid home record of 3-2-1 this season, scoring 8 goals and conceding 5, although they will be looking to win more games there if promotion is a real aim for the side.

The team have won 5 of their last 6 games in all competitions while remaining unbeaten in all of those games. Palace have lost just 1 of their 10 games at Selhurst Park this season and they have scored at least 2 goals in 7 of their 10 home games.

Darren Ambrose suffered a knock against Southampton during the week, and will need a late fitness test to determine his availability in this game. Lee Hills and Alex Marrow are both ruled out through injury.


Reading were expected to be one of the front runners for promotion this season after just missing out in the Play Offs last season with defeat to Swansea in the Play Off Final. They have made a decent start to this season, but they do need to start improving their performances at home if they are to achieve all their goals this season.

The team have gained 17 points this season and sit in 15th place in the Championship, but the majority of their points have come away from home. They are 3-2-1 away from the Majedski Stadium this season, scoring 7 goals and conceding 5.

It looked like things were going a little pear shaped for Brian McDermott when the team lost 5 games in a row in all competitions, but they have since bounced back with a 7 game unbeaten run. The Royals have not lost in 3 games away from home, winning the last 2 of those while scoring 4 goals and conceding 2.
