Reading fullback Gunter unsure of handling Tottenham's Bale

Reading fullback Chris Gunter is unsure about how he will handle Tottenham star Gareth Bale today.

The full-back, 23, knows he will have his work cut out facing the wing wizard at the Madejski.

Gunter said: "Gareth is a world-class winger who I know well - we have just been on an international break together

"It will be good to see him and some of the others from my Tottenham days. I have only played against him once so it should be good.

"It is an advantage that I know him well but he is such a good player that I won't know how to deal with him until we are out there playing.

"I have played and trained with him for a number of years, so I know some of his strengths and weaknesses and that will be a help.

"We spoke about the game while with Wales and I ­cannot wait. They need the points and so do we so it should be good."
