Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici has admitted the Royals were pushed all the way by Leeds on Good Friday, but said they are ready for their trip to Brighton as they look to continue their fantastic form.
Brian McDermott's side currently occupy the second automatic promotion berth in the npower Championship table following a 2-0 win over the Yorkshire club at the start of the Easter weekend.
And despite the difficult nature of the win, Federici is looking ahead to the fixture at Brighton.
"It was a tough game on Friday, you're going to get that from a Neil Warnock side. He's a good manager, but you always know you're in for a fight," Federici told Reading's official website.
"But we have licked our wounds and now we're really looking forward to the game on Tuesday night - it's all about a big game at Brighton.
"People are saying about how many wins we need, but we'll concentrate on this one win right now and focus only on Tuesday night."
The Football League calendar always throws up a tight fixture schedule around Easter, as Australia international Federici is all too aware.
"I've lost track of the days to be honest, with so many games," he said. "I'm always at the training ground every day anyway it seems - I'm going to have to set my bed up there I think."
Brighton started the season well but have fallen away of late and now sit on the periphery of the play-off places.
However, manager Gus Poyet said he is looking forward to facing a strong Reading outfit, telling the club's official website: "We have a chance to test ourselves against the best team (in the Championship) and it will be good to see how the players perform against them."
