Peterborough United Preview – Can Posh win relegation tussle?

Seven games without a win in the Championship which also includes six defeats isn’t the sort of form a team needs when they’re down near the bottom of the Championship but this is Peterborough United’s situation as the third from bottom hosts prepare for this ‘six-pointer’ against Reading on Wednesday night.

As Peterborough have managed to win just one of their last 15 matches overall, the prospects of a home win here seem unlikely but goals could feature as seven of Peterborough’s 14 home games have seen over 2.5 goals while each of the last 10 meetings against Reading have also seen 3 goals or more.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Reading Preview – Can Royals pull further away?

Reading hold a slender two-point cushion over their third from bottom hosts, Peterborough United, prior to Wednesday night’s crucial relegation battle in the Championship with the visitors looking to halt a miserable seven-game losing streak.

Interestingly, six of Reading’s last seven matches have also resulted in over 2.5 goals while on the road, The Royals have lost their last four matches on the trot with defeats at West Brom, Middlesbrough, QPR and Bristol City – the last three losses also seeing 3 goals or more scored.
