Reading Preview – Can Reading move to safety?

Although Reading have posted a mixed bag of results in recent times in the Championship, Tuesday night’s hosts hold a comfortable looking seven-point cushion over third from bottom outfit, Huddersfield Town, prior to this midweek round of fixtures in the second tier.

Victories over Barnsley 2-0 at home and a resounding 3-1 win on the road at Birmingham City have been in the middle of defeats against Wigan Athletic and Derby County, so The Royals will no doubt be keen to get something out of this encounter to put further daylight between themselves and the relegation zone.

The only problem is that Reading will be up against high-flying Brentford in this clash who themselves aren’t completely out of the running for automatic promotion, but goals look a good prospect here as 10 of Reading’s 19 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Brentford Preview – Can Brentford maintain pressure?

3rd placed Brentford are making a late claim for possible automatic promotion as The Bees have won their last three matches on the trot in the Championship which has moved them just five points adrift of 2nd placed West Brom thanks to their win on Saturday at Griffin Park.

As the season draws nearer to its conclusion, it’s a matter of who can hold their nerve the longest and Brentford are certainly making a serious challenge following wins against Sheffield Wednesday, Fulham and the aforementioned excellent result against West Brom, while results away from home have also ben impressive.

Thomas Frank’s side have suffered just one defeat out of their last seven matches on their travels which includes earlier wins on the road at Bristol City 4-0 and Hull City 5-1, while goals have also featured when The Bees hit the road with 9 of Brentford’s 20 away matches seeing over 2.5 goals.
