Having made the play-off final last year, many had high hopes for Reading at the start of the season but things have gone very badly for Jaap Stam and his team in this campaign.
Only the dismal form of the bottom three has kept the Royals away from a serious relegation fight, although they still have time to get dragged into one, sitting just six points ahead of Birmingham who are 22nd.
Whilst there are various factors that have contributed to make this a poor season, one major issue is a lack of goals.
No player has hit double figures in the league and more worryingly, only two players have more than three goals in the Championship as they gear up for their 37th game tonight.
Therefore, bringing in a natural finisher has to be a priority for the side in the summer. And, one man who could be the answer is Wigan’s Will Grigg.
The Northern Ireland striker is only 26-years old and whilst he struggled in the Championship last year, his stats make for impressive reading.
With 11 for the season, Grigg is scoring every 163.5 minutes and has a shot conversion rate of 35% – both very impressive figures.
Of course, Reading will hope to be a Championship club next season and he is currently playing in League One but it proves he can finish.
The Royals are a side that can create chances and have good movement and fluidity from the midfield and wide men, so they don’t need a great all-round centre-forward.
Instead, the need someone who can stick the ball in the net – which Grigg can clearly do.
