Sheffield United host Reading at Bramall Lane in the EFL Championship on Friday, with both sides having contrasting seasons so far.

Sheffield are currently sixth in the table, with a win potentially taking them up to fourth. Paul Heckingbottom's side have been in inconsistent form of late, having only won two of their last five games. They will look to turn things around with a win against Reading on Friday.

Reading, on the other hand, are currently 21st in the league, eight points above the relegation zone. Paul Ince's side will be going into the game off the back of a 2-1 loss against Cardiff City last time out. They will hope to bounce back with a win against Sheffield on Friday.

"Football's a squad game. Over the course of the season your job is to understand your role when you come in, to a man we've done that really well this season."Wes Foderingham's Reading preview. πŸ‘‡πŸ§€

Both sides will want to win the game for different reasons and that should make for an interesting matchup.
