Reading goalkeeper Stuart Taylor is ready to face former club Arsenal today.

Taylor has paid tribute to former manager Arsene Wenger.

Taylor told The Sun: “I was third choice at Arsenal but as David Seaman got older he picked up more and more knocks.

“Then Richard Wright got injured and I got my chance. It was a fantastic experience to be playing in that team at the time.

“I was in awe of the players there but Arsene Wenger was fantastic too. Wenger does everything at the club. The only thing he didn’t do was hang our shirts out in the dressing room.

“Last summer I didn’t have a club and they let me go back in and train."
