Football – England – Championship Betting Tips
We’re set for a cracker of a match if the form book remains true for Tuesday night’s clash between hosts Reading and visitors Newcastle United at the Madejski Stadium, with a valuable three points up for grabs for both sides as they pursue promotion.
Fifth placed Reading possess one of the best home records in the English second tier with a record that stands at 12-4-2 28/14, and despite suffering two recent defeats away from home at Huddersfield Town and Brighton, they bounced back with a 2-1 home win over hapless Wolves on Saturday.
The Wolves victory made it four wins from the Royals’ last five matches on home turf following earlier league wins over Fulham, a rejuvenated Cardiff City and Brentford. Reading have failed to score in just three home games throughout this whole campaign to date.
Onto Newcastle United, and The Magpies further strengthened their claims for automatic promotion with a pulsating 3-1 win away at third placed Huddersfield Town which is no mean feat as The Terriers had lost just twice at home prior.
But Newcastle United hold far and away the best away record in the Championship with impressive stats of 13-2-3 32/12 and they come into this encounter in Berkshire on the back of a ten-game stretch without defeat.
The visitors have also won four of their last five matches on their travels with wins at Brentford and Wolves along with impressive victories over promotion rivals Brighton and Huddersfield Town, and they now look almost certain for promotion back up to the Premier League as they hold an 11-point lead over third placed Huddersfield.
