Reading have been one of the strugglers in this season’s Championship campaign and with just three points separating them from the bottom three in the league table, the bookmakers have them chalked in as one of the favourites to be relegated at the end of the season. Their last outing saw them grab a hugely important 3-2 win over fellow strugglers Wigan Athletic with Yakou Meite scoring in the seventh minute of stoppage time, however this was only their eighth win of the campaign and they remain very much in the danger zone as things stand.
Reading have been reasonable in front of their home fans this term with six wins, four draws and eight defeats, however while they have triumphed in two of their last three home matches, these were against bottom-half sides Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic. We don’t envisage the Royals faring quite so well against Leeds United.

Leeds United head into this match on the back of a 1-0 victory over Bristol City, the West Yorkshire side finding the net in the tenth minute courtesy of Patrick Bamford in what proved to be the only goal of the match. This win keeps Leeds hot on the heels of table-topping Norwich City and more importantly two points clear of third-placed Sheffield United.
The Whites may not have been enjoying their best form of late but they are certainly a force to be reckoned with and as such we’ll be siding firmly with the visitors to add another three points to their season tally and edge themselves ever promotion to promotion back to the Premier League, Ladbrokes Bookmakers going 9/5 on Leeds United to win-to-nil.
