Sports Mole previews Reading's chances of achieving automatic promotion back to the Premier League against Nottingham Forest tomorrow night.

Reading could reclaim the status of a Premier League club with victory over Nottingham Forest tomorrow night.

All the Royals have to do is match the result that West Ham United achieve at Bristol City to seal a return to the top flight.

The task looks to be a tough one for visiting Forest when considering that Reading have won their last six matches at home. During that time they have scored 12 goals, while only letting in two.

Mikele Leigertwood is expected to start for Reading following a knee injury that has ruled him out of their last two matches.

However, Jay Tabb looks likely to miss the encounter with a muscular complaint.

Forest, who are unbeaten in their last four away matches, have a fitness doubt over Guy Moussi.

Current form:

Reading: LWWWWW
Forest: DDWLWD

Possible lineups:

Reading: Federici; Cummings, Pearce, Gorkss, Hart; Kebe, Leigertwood, Mullins, McAnuff; Roberts, Hunt

Forest: Camp; Gunter, Chambers, Lynch, Cunningham; Anderson, McGugan, Guedioura, Reid, Majewski; Blackstock

Sports Mole says: 3-1
