Fulham, who have had an exceptional home record in the last two visits of Reading to Craven Cottage, will look to make the advantage of the first leg count on Saturday evening when the Whites defend a six game unbeaten run to end the regulation season.

However, Reading, who finished third, five points ahead of the sixth-placed Fulham, for what that is worth, go into this game seeking a third straight win they can look to defend at the Madejski Stadium, which has been an absolute fortress for the Royals this season.

The poor end of season form shown by Huddersfield, finishing fifth, led to three defeats in the final four games as the wheels came off of Town’s outside bet of automatic promotion in the last month of the campaign.

On the other hand, Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday, despite a final day defeat against Fulham, had won six of a seven game unbeaten run, which saw the Owls finish above their hosts in fifth.

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We’ll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we’re looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don’t just look also have a say. We don’t just want your vote, which you can do to the right, we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
