Reading started with a defeat on the road and has picked up the first win this term at home in the second-round last match-week. The Royals will play the host again in the England Championship to Bristol City on Tuesday for the third-round game at Select Car Leasing Stadium.
The host will be relieved to finally win a game in their schedule after two consecutive defeats and a seven-game winless run across all major competitions. Their previous encounter was at home and they defeated Preston with a 2-1 scoreline in the Championship.
In the meantime, the Robins haven’t won a game since March this year in the Championship. Their 12-game winless run in the league until now will probably hold them back in the trip. They will visit on the back of a 2-1 loss on the road against Middlesbrough last time out in their schedule.
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be a home win in ninety minutes. Reading will come into the game on the back of a home win and the ground advantage will also back them up to carry forward that streak at this venue.
The host has lost none of their last eight home matches and their only recent defeat at home was in the EFL Cup. On the contrary, the Robins have been winless in their last seven outings in the schedule.
Besides, the visitor hasn’t been the best on the field for quite a time by now. Their previous win was in early March and has been winless in the past two clashes this term. Thus, the home team will have a slight edge over Bristol City in the encounter.
