Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson believes his team will give second placed Reading a good game tonight - if they get the quality right at both ends of the field.

Posh suffered their third defeat in four Championship games at Ipswich on Saturday. They fought back to equalise twice before losing 3-2.

And they have to stop a Reading team who haven't lost since their home defeat to Hull in January. Saturday's 4-0 win at Barnsley was Reading's ninth in ten games.

'The key parts are both penalty boxes. It's something we spoke about after the game on Saturday. We have to improve in both boxes.

We're creating so many chances and not taking them, especially when we're in control of the game. Defensively, at set pieces, we have to improve. And if we can do that we'll definitely give Reading a game, there's no doubt about that'.
