Venue: Madejski Stadium
Date: Saturday, 17 November, 2012
Kick off: 15:00
Reading’s only league win over Everton in six meetings came in their most recent encounter at the Madejski Stadium in August 2007, Steven Hunt scoring the only goal.
The Royals surprisingly knocked Everton out of the FA Cup during the 2010-11 season at Goodison Park courtesy of a Matt Mills goal – the only previous meeting between sides with Brian McDermott and David Moyes as the respective managers.
Brian McDermott’s side kept their first clean sheet of the season with last weekend’s goalless draw with Norwich.
A third of Reading’s 12 goals have been scored in the last five minutes of their league matches.
Reading have drawn their last three league games; it’s their longest run in the division without defeat since going five matches unbeaten in December 2007.
The winless Royals have drawn in all four Premier League matches in which they have opened the scoring.
The Toffees have lost only one of their last 20 league matches.
Everton are one point shy of totalling 600 Premier League points under the management of David Moyes.
Victory would see the Toffees equal their 2004-05 Premier League best of 23 points from 12 games – they went on to finish fourth that season.
Everton set a Premier League record last weekend by picking up points for the sixth consecutive league match after conceding the opening goal (W2, D4).
