Reading remain in the hunt for a play-off place as things stand although their recent form has been cause for concern and manager Jaap Stam will be demanding three points when Wolverhampton Wanderers come to town this weekend. The Royals have managed just a single win in their last six Championship outings and head into Saturday afternoon’s clash on the back of a two-match losing run. Can they put this dismal recent showing to an end at the Madejski Stadium?
Stam’s men have failed to find the net in their last two away matches although they have enjoyed better form on home turf with just one defeat at the Madejski since October, therefore they look pretty well priced at 13/10 to collect the three points when they go head-to-head with a Wolverhampton Wanderers side which remain dangerously close to the relegation zone.
Wolves sit just two points above the bottom three following what has been a poor Championship campaign so far. Paul Lambert’s men have lost their last four league outings and given their recent showings they look in serious danger of making the drop at the end of the season. The West Midlands outfit haven’t managed an away win in the Championship since December and this doesn’t bode well ahead of a clash with one of the play-off contenders, this fact reflected in the odds of 12/5 on an away win on Saturday afternoon.
Reading are attractively priced at 13/10 with William Hill and we believe that they can bounce back from recent disappointments by securing a vital win at home this weekend.
