Fulham host relegated Reading on Saturday looking for three points that could lift them into ninth.

Relegated Reading travel to Craven Cottage on Saturday to face Fulham, with the Londoners looking for another win to fully erase fears of the drop themselves.

Fulham are on a terrible run of form, having lost four of their last five in the league including a 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park last weekend.

Reading have not won since the start of February, a run of form which has seen them drop to the bottom of the Premier League on goal difference.

Martin Jol's hopes of a win could be hit by Dimitar Berbatov's injury; the striker was taken off against Everton and could well miss two weeks with a torn calf muscle.

For Reading, Jimmy Kebe and Jason Roberts are still out with injury, which means Pavel Pogrebnyak should start up front.
