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.

"We've just got to worry about our end of the bargain," he told the club's website. "We've must go out there and leave everything on the pitch and what will be will be.

"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."
