Reading hold the final ticket to the Sky Bet Championship play-offs in their hands ahead of the final day of the season on Saturday.

Victory at home to already-promoted Burnley will see the Royals secure at least sixth place, but they know they cannot afford a slip with Brighton only one point behind.

Waiting in the wings are the Seagulls, who travel to Nottingham Forest hoping to find themselves in the play-off mix by the day's end.

Experienced defender Matt Upson has warned his team-mates and the fans that all their attention must be on Forest, because without a result Reading's scoreline will become irrelevant.

"Obviously we'd love to win the game and know we have done everything we can to force the issue, but it's a little bit out of our hands in terms of the Reading result, but it's a massive game and we've just got to approach it in the right way."

FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
