THE PREDICTION

Derby will be hoping for significant improvement under Phillip Cocu this season, but their plans have already been jeopardised by injuries. Most significantly, captain Wayne Rooney is a serious doubt for this game with a muscle injury. With the Rams’ preparation dented, Reading should take advantage here and pick up a valuable point on the road.
