One point is all that is needed for the swans to guarantee a play off place, The noon kick off at the Madejski Stadium is also Reading’s last opportunity to put pressure on the swans in sixth place.

Steve Cooper
“All season we have tried to be positive and on the front foot and we want to continue with that,” said the Swans boss. Sometimes we have played better than others, but we have always looked to be positive and that does not change. So, I don’t know what sort of message you send out to the players if you play for a draw, we always want to win. I think that whatever has happened before is now behind us and we look forward. “We are in a positive position in terms of the play-offs, and we should take confidence from that and look to get the job done."

Veljko Paunovic
“It gets much more difficult but we will not give up and we have to be ready if things go well on the other side. "It's definitely worth giving our best to the end and you never know in football. Things change very quickly and we have to be ready to convert our opportunity. "This is the last moment to understand how important this is. It's not going to be easy or perfect opportunities at this point in the season and you have to be clinical. You're going to have an opponent on top of your neck and you have to fight that but that's what teams do. That's what we have to do and get better at."
