Reading v Villa podcast: Lambert and Lowton on Royals clash
The pair join presenter Jack Woodward as we build up to the crunch encounter at the Madejski Stadium.
Lambert discusses the quality of Villa's performances against Arsenal and Manchester City and how they must take the positives from those games in to the end-of-season run-in.
The Villa boss praises the support his team have received from the claret and blue faithful.
Lowton - an ever-present for Villa in the Barclays Premier League this term - talks of the importance of the next two games against Reading and QPR.
He hails the endeavour and effort the team have shown in recent weeks and also delivers his backing for Ciaran Clark after his error against Manchester City.
Villa legend and AVTV pundit Tony Morley also offers his thoughts on the relegation scrap.
Morley says the claret and blues will miss suspended midfielder Fabian Delph over the next two games but insists it is a great opportunity for somebody else to shine.
You can also relive highlights from Villa's last league visit to Reading when Marlon Harewood was the match-winner, as well as John Carew's FA Cup quarter-final hat-trick at the Madejski in 2010 and Christian Benteke's winner against the Royals from earlier this season.
