Derby County will be looking to build on a recent win over Luton Town when they return to action on Monday afternoon.
The Rams beat the Hatters 2-0 on Good Friday, which saw them move eight points clear of the relegation zone in the Championship, as they head into their final seven matches of this year’s campaign.
It won’t be an easy task to make it back-to-back wins though, as they take on promotion-chasing Reading at the Madejski Stadium.
The Royals are currently sat sixth in the second-tier standings, and will be eager to pick up a much-needed three points on Monday, as they look to strengthen their grip on a play-off position.

Wayne Rooney has named his starting XI ahead of the game, as Derby look to pull further clear of the relegation zone in the Championship.

Good team considering our injury crisis, but seems that forced Sibley to play out wide. https://t.co/QmCmZMUlIF

Need a big performance today. Lots of player injured and Rotherham against Wycombe could start making the last few games very scary.
