Preview: Reading vs. Brighton & Hove Albion

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Championship meeting between Reading and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Reading will be hoping to move into the Championship's top six when they take on Brighton & Hove Albion at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday.

The Royals have won two of their five league matches this season, including a 1-0 victory over Yeovil Town before the international break.

Visitors Brighton are unbeaten in their last three matches, winning against Birmingham City and Burnley before securing a late draw against Millwall last time out.

Oscar Garcia's side could move into the top half of the table with a victory.

Reading boss Nigel Adkins has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the match. Mikele Leigertwood and Jason Roberts have returned to training this week following knocks, but they are unlikely to feature against Brighton.

Garcia could name the same Brighton XI that drew with Millwall.
