Reading Preview – Can Reading build on Barnsley win?

Reading head into this FA Cup 5th round tie against Sheffield United on the back of a much needed 2-0 home win against Barnsley in the Championship which will have been a welcome boost for The Royals in their bid to avoid relegation.

The hosts now sit in 16th place and hold a 7-point lead over third from bottom club, Middlesbrough, but they’re still not yet out of the woods in terms of avoiding the drop down to League One, so manager Mark Bowen may rotate his squad for this cup-tie with one eye on their upcoming clash against Birmingham City this weekend.

Although Reading picked up a vital 3-0 win away from home at Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship recently as well, the fact remains that The Royals have managed to collect just 3 wins out of their last 12 matches in all competitions.

2 away wins out of their last 6 in all competitions may also not be enough to worry tonight’s Premier League visitors, Sheffield United.

Our betting suggestion:
Over 2.5 goals

Sheffield United Preview – Can Sheffield Utd progress?

There’s every chance that Chris Wilder’s side can progress into the next round of the FA Cup as they make their way down to Berkshire for this Tuesday night clash at the Madejski Stadium feeling refreshed and ready to go after having more than a week to prepare.

Sheffield United’s last match was a 1-1 draw at home with Brighton weekend before last and this result extended The Blades’ unbeaten run in all competitions to 4 matches which included Premier League wins against Crystal Palace and Bournemouth as well as a 2-0 win away at Championship outfit, Millwall, in the previous round of the FA Cup.

The visitors also seem well equipped to play away from home as their counter-attacking style of employing the wing-backs as extra attacking personnel has caught a lot of teams out in the top flight, and this could also be the case at Reading as well.

The Blades have lost just 2 of their last 14 matches away from home in all competitions.
