Reading News and Form

The Royals managed to get an important three points at home against Blackburn in midweek which was enough to get them out of the drop zone. They moved them onto a four-match undefeated streak of league form, losing just one of their last six. Reading have just one away win all season in the division though (D8 L7) and are facing a tough away game here.

Their one away win happened at Preston back in September. So that’s a 12 match away streak without a win for them. The Royals have only come up with the 13 goals from their 16 away games and they have managed only the two in their last five. Only 38% of their away fixtures have ended over 2.5 goals. Reading have been at 0-0 at the halftime break in exactly half of their away games.
