Reading's defeat at Nottingham Forest has kept the play-off suspense going for another week but will it, or should it, impact Jaap Stam's selection and planning for the final two games of the season? We look back on last weekend's 3-2 loss as well as ahead to Saturday's potential play-off clincher against relegation threatened Wigan.
The mailbag throws up questions from next season's squad, to the mentality of our away defeats and much more, while in newsbites we take a quick look at some of the loan success stories from the season so far.
All of that and all the other key Reading FC talking points from the past week with Wimb, Jonny and Rob Langham.
