Cardiff have experienced a dramatic return to the Championship, but Neil Warnock will hope his side can get the job done against Reading without resorting to last-ditch fireworks.
The Bluebirds were defeated 3-2 by Wigan in their opening clash, before a 96th-minute winner from Isaac Vassell scraped all three points in a 2-1 victory over Luton Town last weekend.
Warnock will hope for a drama-free, tidy display against Reading who are yet to find a point.
The Royals were beaten by Sheffield United and Hull in their first two clashes, and had to rely on penalties to get beyond League One side Wycombe in the Carabao Cup first round.
Jose Gomes faces a tough task keeping his team afloat this season, and will demand a big performance against a side expected to challenge at the other end of the table.
