[[[Livestream>>]]!!!] Reading v Burnley live watch 15 April 2023
In Ince's defence, his side had posted three draws in a row before the Easter Monday trip to Preston North End, and Reading only lost 2-1 to one of the form teams in the division. Nevertheless, things had gone stale under the former Manchester United midfielder, resulting in the reins being handed to Noel Hunt until the end of the season. Fixtures with Burnley and third-placed Luton Town are far from ideal, yet Reading will feel that they can at least place with a sense of freedom in matches that they are not expected to win. Reading Championship form: Burnley Championship form: Burnley form (all competitions): Team News With Reading only losing their three-match unbeaten streak through a last-gasp goal, Hunt may be prepared to stick with Ince's 3-5-2 formation. Although Kelvin Ehibhatiomhan came off the substitutes' bench to score at Deepdale, the youngster is unlikely to be drafted into the starting lineup.

Burnley returned from the March international break by registering a goalless draw with Sunderland, but their performance levels were raised over the Easter period.

Burnley are also on a 20-match undefeated streak in the Championship, making them the worst-possible opponents for a side who are in the relegation zone and have just sacked their manager. Although Ince cannot be blamed for the six-point deduction that has dramatically changed Reading's outlook on the season, the Royals are without a win since the end of February.
