Sports Mole previews Sunderland's trip to Reading on Saturday in the Premier League.

On-form Reading host Sunderland on Saturday looking for three more points to keep them heading in the right direction in the Premier League table.

Both sides drew in midweek, Reading holding Chelsea to a 2-2 draw and Sunderland playing out a 0-0 stalemate at home to Swansea City.

Brian McDermott could name a similar lineup that drew against Chelsea, but two-goal hero Adam Le Fondre could be in line for a start.

Sunderland could bring in Danny Graham in time for Saturday's game, but otherwise are likely to play a similar 4-5-1 formation, with Steven Fletcher leading the line.
