Reading v West Bromwich Albion Match Preview

Winless run

Reading grabbed their third win from four Championship outings when they shared the spoils with Hull City (1-1) last weekend and this extended their winless league run to six games. Nevertheless the Berkshire outfit have lost just twice in their last twelve and they will be confident of giving West Bromwich Albion a run for their money in tonight’s match.


Home comforts

In front of their home fans, Reading are three without a win, however they have suffered just a single defeat in their last five at the Madejski Stadium. The Royals currently sit in the lowly position of 16th in the league table and the prospects of them battling for a play-off berth look remote given that they sit some eleven points adrift of the top-six as things stand.



West Bromwich Albion could lift themselves six points clear of second-placed Leeds United should they win this match and Fulham fail to beat city rivals Millwall. The Baggies will look to build on their positive performance against Millwall last time out, this result ending a three-game winless run on their travels. Indeed the West Midlands outfit have lost just once in their last ten away from the Hawthorns and while it’s hard for visiting teams to get a decent result at the Madejski Stadium this term, we’ll be siding with West Bromwich Albion to turn this match their way and head home with the three points in the bag.
