Ipswich have lost five consecutive league games against Reading, including two at Portman Road.
Reading scored twice in second-half stoppage time to win 3-2 on their last trip to Ipswich, back in the 2011/12 Championship campaign.
Ipswich have dropped 23 points from leading positions this campaign; a league-high.
Last weekend, the Royals netted seven goals in a league match for the first time since December 1979 (v Barnsley, 7-0).
No player has made more assists this season than Garath McCleary (10). Indeed, the Reading winger is the only player to have assisted three goals on two occasions this season (v Bolton & Doncaster).
The Tractor Boys have gone four league games without a win, losing their last two (D2).
