LIAM Rosenior, who has a boot in both camps, believes that either Ipswich Town or Reading will make a charge up the table, but not both of them!
Although Rosenior is still under contract at Reading, he no longer considers himself to be a part of the Royals' long-term plans.
Instead, the 25-year-old right-back, who is on loan at Portman Road for the season, is focussing on propelling Town off the basement and up towards the play-offs.
And it all starts at the Madejski Stadium this afternoon, as two of the bottom four clubs clash in Berkshire. Rosenior is cleared to play against his parent club.
“Ipswich and Reading are the two most likely teams to get on a run and move up the table,” insisted Rosenior.

“There's always one team who make a run for promotion, and I'm, sure that will be the case this season as well.
“Burnley were terrible at the start of last season, but ended up getting promoted and have recently beaten Manchester United!
“Hull also started slowly the year they went up, as did Crystal Palace a few years before them.
“But I think that only one team from Ipswich and Reading can go on a run, and to be honest I think it will be us,” added Rosenior.
Roy Keane's men, fresh from their first win of the season against Derby last weekend, will leapfrog Reading in the Championship table if they can record back-to-back victories this afternoon.
The Royals are currently two points and three places above Town. They too won last weekend, 3-1 at Coventry City, but have not won at home since January.
“Last weekend was a massive result for us, because it means we no longer have to think about getting our first win,” continued Rosenior.
“We want to push on now, but there is still as much pressure. We are still bottom of the league and we still want to be in the top six.
“We need to go on a few runs to get up there.”
