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.
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
