Nigerian forward Yakubu Aiyegbeni will face a Herculean task tonight as he searches for his second goal for Reading who host Championship leaders Bournemouth at Madejski Stadium.
The former Al-Rayyan player whose only goal for the Royals came in the 2-1 win over Derby in the FA Cup has failed to score in the Championship for Steve Clarke’s men since joining them in January.
The 32-year-old former Blackburn, Middlesbrough and Everton striker remains the only Nigerian to score more than 100 goals in the history of the English Premiership.
He has made nine appearances fo far. The Royals are 18th in the table, 11 points above the relegation spot.
