Reading boss Brian McDermott is likely to resist the temptation to tinker with his team for the Barclays Premier League trip to Tottenham.
Despite the congested festive fixtures, McDermott named an unchanged side for the last two games, a goalless draw against Swansea and a vital 1-0 success at home to West Ham, and will not be frightened to stick with the same XI at White Hart Lane.
"We are used to playing so many games from the Championship so it isn't really relevant to me. They love playing so we are getting results and sticking with the team, that is how I do it," he said.
