Steve has been back in touch to say: 'Sadly, it is so predictable. The word has gone around all premiership managers: let Swansea have the ball and wait...they will provide you with the chances to beat them. In the meantime get as many people behind the ball as possible - it's just too simple. We can now see how good Caulker was last season!'
Fancy a bet? Sky Bet now go 12/1 for a home win, 5/1 for the draw and 1/5 for a Reading victory. If Swansea get the first goal, they could get back in this as they had the lion's share of possession but failed to convert.

GOAL - POGREBNYAK!!!! Reading score against the run of play. McAnuff passes from 35 yards into the left side of the box who shoots on the half turn from 15 yards and it slips under Vorm and into the net. Bad goalkeeper mistake!
Swansea press and Routledge and Dyer play a one-two before Routledge tries a shot but it hits Mariappa and Michu blasts the loose ball over from 15 yards. There are calls for a pen - that the ball hits Mariappa's arm - but the ref waves play on. Replays show it does hit his arm.

Teams - Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has made one change to his starting line-up for this afternoon's clash. The sole adjustment from last Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Stoke sees Wayne Routledge come into the Swans side for the benched Pablo Hernandez, with skipper Ashley Williams - this week named as the new Wales captain - passed fit to continue in defence. There is also only one alteration to the Royals' first XI from their 2-2 draw with Newcastle as Jay Tabb replaces the injured Mikele Leigertwood.
