Leeds will now be fully focused on their own match and could take another stride towards promotion with a victory.
Garry Monk’s side still have an outside bet of reaching the automatic spots in the table, but if not will have to go through the drama of the play-offs.
They would play the sixth-placed team if they can finish in third and have a supposedly easier route to the final at Wembley.
Leeds did manage to beat Reading 2-0 in the previous meeting this season and will be keen to stretch their current unbeaten run this time around.
