The Madejski Stadium hosts the only Premier League match today as Reading FC plays Tottenham Hotspur (live on FOX Soccer at 11am ET).
This should be a quite open game since both teams have something to prove. Tottenham Hotspur has yet to pick up a win. Reading, too, needs a win — although they have played one less game than Tottenham due to the postponement of its match against Sunderland. Out of the two clubs, the pressure is more on Tottenham to win, which will serve Reading pretty well as underdogs.
Don’t underestimate Brian McDermott’s Reading side. They’re well organized, and Pavel Pogrebnyak is certainly a threat up front for The Royals.
Meanwhile, Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas puts his faith in Brad Friedel as his starting goalkeeper. Whether Clint Dempsey will see any playing time or not today, we’ll have to wait and see. But Villas-Boas certainly has an abundance of riches to choose from.
