Reading did the double over West Ham in last season’s Championship – there were nine goals over the two games, with Reading winning 4-2 at Upton Park, having won 3-0 at home, a match which West Ham finished with nine men after Joey O’Brien and Jack Collison were sent off.

Reading’s 6-0 win in this fixture on New Year’s Day 2007 remains their biggest Premier League victory.


Their 0-0 draw with Swansea on Boxing Day ended a run of seven straight defeats and was their first clean sheet since 10 November.

Reading have won just one of their nine home games this season, a 2-1 victory over Everton in November. That has been their only league win so far in 2012-13.

The Royals have failed to score in four of their last five league matches.

Only one team has ever avoided defeat from the Premier League after accruing 10 points or fewer after 19 matches – West Brom, who stayed up by a point in 2004-05.

West Ham

West Ham have won one of their last seven Premier League games (W1, D2, L4).

The Hammers have won just one of their last five away league matches. They have scored a mere five goals on the road this season, fewer than any other top-flight team.

Only four clubs (Stoke, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal) have conceded fewer goals than West Ham (22) in this season’s Premier League.
