A trip to Royal Berkshire beckons for the Cottagers today.

A short trip out of West London and onto the M4 makes the Reading fixture one of the more accessible.

But, delving through the history and form books, what can we expect?

Here are a few facts and figures for your dissection:

? Fulham haven`t fared well in recent away clashes with Reading, the last 4 games have seen Fulham, lose 2 and draw 2.

? The above run of 4 games is reading`s longest unbeaten run against Fulham.

? When it comes to keeping clean sheets, Fulham have managed that on just 1/b> occasion in the past 10 games, in all competitions, with Reading.

? When it comes to goals scored, since the opening day of last season, no side in the Championship can better Fulham`s record of 86 goals.

? Reading lost their opening day fixture of the new season, the Royals have not lost their opening 2 league games of a season since 1998 / 1999, on that occasion they were in the third tier.
