Reading Preview – Can the Royals avoid another heavy defeat?

Reading were finally showing signs of life as two wins and a draw from three lifted some of the intense pressure. The Berkshire side drew at Peterborough United before securing vital back-to-back victories against Preston North End and Birmingham City.

However, they were brought back down to earth with a bump in Paul Ince’s second game in charge last weekend. Despite Reading taking an early lead at Bloomfield Road, Blackpool turned on the style in the second half to secure a big 4-1 home win.

Our betting prediction:
Millwall to win by one goal

(odds taken 1111 GMT, Friday 4 March)

The recent win over Birmingham stopped a run of four straight home losses and was their first triumph at the Select Car Leasing Stadium since October. Ince and his troops will be desperate to make home advantage count in this one.

Millwall Preview – Lions to make it five wins on the spin?

Millwall could be one to watch out for in the race for the play-offs, as the Lions are on a purple patch of form right now. The London side have kept their top-six hopes alive with four wins on the trot.

Since a 3-0 loss at Fulham in early February, Millwall have not put a foot wrong. Gary Rowett’s boys have gone on to secure successive league victories over Cardiff City, Queens Park Rangers, Derby County and Sheffield United.
