Three classic Boro wins over Saturday's opponents...

December Decimation

Mikkel Beck and Craig Hignett each bagged a brace in this match in 1997, a late four-goal flurry as promotion hopefuls Boro saw off relegation-threatened Reading's stubborn resistance at the Riverside. 

Forshaw At The Last

Adam Forshaw was the unlikely hero as a late winner sent the Riverside into pandemonium in April 2016. Emilio Nsue opened the scoring for Boro but Simon Cox levelled up in the second half. Midfielder Forshaw snatched the winner at the end of some penalty box pinball to secure a vital three points. 

Adama Magic

Adama Traore proved too hot for Reading to handle in this meeting in February 2018. The Spanish speedster was really hitting his straps under Tony Pulis, and hit his first two Riverside goals either side of half-time in a 2-1 victory.
