READING - BURTON ALBION
Tough looking quote for the hosts, eecially given that they have not won at home in ten starts and have nine players away on international duty. However, this is one of the biggest squads around and they have very able replacements, for example, keeper Ben Hamer who will start tonight, played almost every game in the Brentford Division 2 Championship winning side of last season.Big summer signing Matt Mills will make his debut and everyone else will be looking to earn a regular starting place. The Royals opened with a 0-0 draw at the weekend, but played really well, created plenty of chances and kept possession making almost 500 passes an incredible number. They should have too much for a Burton side fortunate to have got into the Football League last season. They almost blew a huge lead over the closing months , when they did not play well and several teams would have been better suited for league status. They are without new striker Robin Shroot tonight.
