Veljko Paunovic hopes with Reading to take a second home win in a row against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
In the middle of the week, his team lost points in a controversial 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday in Hillsborough.
Callum Paterson opened the match against the run of the game before former Owl Lucas Joao equalized at half time.
The hosts played 60 minutes with 10 men due to a red card for Liam Shaw.
The Royals also felt that three clear criminal claims in the last 45 had been denied.
Meanwhile, Chris Hughton is hoping to reinforce his side’s useful point against Watford with a positive result against the Berkshire side.
The City Ground ended goalless, so there were four games without scoring for the East Midlands team.
Ivorian Yakou Meite missed Wednesday but is expected to recover from a blow to play.
Scottish defender Scott McKenna missed the game against the Hornets but is expected to return to the Madejski Stadium.
Portuguese striker Joao remains in glowing form after scoring 10 league goals so far throughout the season, his most in his five years in the championship.
For visitors, it is former Charlton Athletic forward Lyle Taylor who has scored just under half of all goals scored by his new club.
Similarly, midfielder Ryan Yates is proving extremely important, supporting nearly a quarter of his goals.
Both games last season ended 1-1, and in both games the goals came within the last 10 minutes.
At Madejski, Ben Watson met in 96. Minute, only that Tobias Figueiredo scored an own goal seconds later.
At the City Ground, former Royal Lewis Grabban scored the first goal after 80 minutes, only former Brighton and Hove Albion striker Sam Baldock equalized.
With the latest news that Reading has been placed in the second tier of Covid-19 restrictions, 2. 000 Royals fans are seeing their team at home for the first time in 10 months.
« I want it to be emotional, I want it to be exciting, I want it to be unforgettable.
« I want to prepare the team to deliver on the field and also to connect with the fans. «
Likewise, Hughton is excited to see the fans back at the Games, but isn’t sure what impact it could have on his team’s performance.
« It means something, for us it’s the positive and the negative. We would have preferred to play in front of an audience at The City Ground last Wednesday, we would have preferred that.
« But we have to accept that it is positive. What we hope is that the most important thing about the safety issues is that it continues to have a larger percentage of supporters and for us this is very much about being able to get as many supporters as possible into The City of Earth ASAP as possible and we hope this can happen.
« We don’t know how this will affect players, we don’t know the answer. « . I would prefer if there was a level playing field with what you are going to get at Reading versus what we can have here at the City Ground. ”
The game will be live on Sky Sports Football from noon and therefore not available on iFollow.
