Sports Mole previews Reading's trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley.

Burnley host Reading on Saturday as they look to maintain their outstanding form in the Championship.

The Clarets have won their last five matches in a run that has seen them move to top of the league table, with striker Danny Ings already netting 10 goals this season.

Manager Sean Dyche is likely to retain the same starting lineup for the match with the Royals, who arrive at Turf Moor in an equally confident manner.

Nigel Adkins's outfit are unbeaten in their last six fixtures, while they have conceded just two goals during that period.

The former Southampton boss could recall Jobi McAnuff after the winger came on as a substitute against Barnsley in midweek.
