EFL Championship leaders West Bromwich Albion will be hoping to extend their lead at the top of the table when they make the trip to the Madejski Stadium to play Reading on Wednesday. Slaven Bilic’s men have the best away record in England’s second tier, but the Madejski is not an easy place to visit. Can Albion secure a vital three points on their travels?

Reading Preview – Can the Royals end their seven-game winless run in midweek?

Reading have certainly improved since Mark Bowen took over at the Madejski Stadium. However, since racking up four consecutive victories, the Royals have failed to win any of their past six in the Championship, drawing four and losing two.

Reading were very strong on their own patch when Bowen first arrived, but Reading have not won at home in five league and cup matches. However, they have been very hard to beat, with only Bristol City winning on their patch since early December. In their last home match, Reading were held to a 1-1 draw by Hull City last weekend.

Our betting prediction:
West Brom clean sheet

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1820 GMT, Tuesday 11 February)

Reading have had a mixed season so far, winning ten, losing 12 and drawing nine. Bowen’s boys are down in 16th place at present with 39 points from 31 games. They are closer to the bottom three than the play-offs, but can they cause an upset against the leaders in midweek?

West Bromwich Albion Preview – Will the Championship’s best away team chalk up another win on the road?

Slaven Bilic’s West Bromwich Albion have got back on track with two vital victories on the spin. The Baggies recently secured their first league win of 2020, beating bottom club Luton Town 2-0 at The Hawthorns. Albion followed that up with an excellent 2-0 win over Millwall in tricky conditions at The Den last Sunday.

With Leeds United in dreadful form, West Brom have moved four points clear at the top after those back-to-back wins. Albion have recovered expertly well after a seven-game winless run (drawing four, losing three), getting their title bid back on track in recent weeks.

West Brom have the best away record in the Championship, accumulating 32 points from 16 matches. Bilic’s troops have picked up nine wins, battled to five draws and suffered just two defeats. Can the Midlands outfit claim a tenth away league victory of the season this Wednesday? The visitors are priced at 21/20 to get the three points in Berkshire.


Reading vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Advice

West Brom are hitting their stride again, while Reading can’t seem to buy a league win at the moment. As I touched on, Reading have been tough to beat at home under Bowen, but I fancy the Baggies to make it three victories on the spin in midweek.


Key Facts – Reading vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Tip

  • Reading are looking for their first league win in seven
  • West Brom have taken an impressive 32 points away from home – the league’s best away record
  • The Baggies have won their last two in the Championship


These two sides drew 1-1 at The Hawthorns back in August, with Kenneth Zohore’s late penalty cancelling out Ovie Ejaria’s 71st-minute effort. Last season, West Brom thumped the Royals 4-1 at home before battling to a goalless draw at the Madejski. I’m putting my money on West Brom to win to nil (5/2) on Wednesday.
