Reading Preview – Can Royals gain home win?

Reading have managed to win just two of their last 10 matches overall in the Championship, both of which were away from home at Birmingham City and Swansea City but six defeats within this period have resulted with Reading hovering just above the relegation zone.

In addition, Reading have failed to win any of their last five home matches which includes defeats to Blackpool, Bournemouth and Sheffield United so the prospects of a home win here seem slim.

Goals could also be thin on the ground though as six of Reading’s 11 home games have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Derby County Preview – Can Rams win four on trot?

Derby County will head into Monday night’s clash away at Reading looking to capture a fourth league win on the trot following wins against Blackpool, West Brom and Stoke City respectively, while the bigger picture shows that Derby have lost just two of their last eight games.

With just four defeats out of their last 15 matches overall, Derby look in fairly good shape to get something from this upcoming clash but The Rams have won just twice on the road so far in this season’s Championship campaign.

A lack of goals looks more likely here though as nine of Derby’s 12 away games have been under 2.5 goals.
