Reading (also known as Reading FC) and Watford meet again a year after the FA Cup match which Reading won 2-0. Reading are on a poor run of form as they're approaching this clash after defeats from Manchester United and Stoke City failing to register a single victory in their past 3 games.

Watford are preparing for the match after a loss against Middlesbrough in Championship on January 28.
