Reading vs Preston (By: Joey)
Reading went winless for the second successive game on the bounce after settling for a goalless stalemate against Stoke City on the road. Jose Gomes’ side have failed to score in both of those matches.
Preston have garnered three wins on the trot following a 1-0 win over Birmingham City before the international break. Alex Neil’s men have excelled especially on the road where they are currently in a run of six straight victories.
The teams previously contested each other at Deepdale in September where Reading picked up a 3-2 win. The last meeting at the Madejski Stadium in April 2018 finished 1-0 in Reading’s favour. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a Preston win.
Reading may have the home advantage for this encounter but they are still expected to face a stiff test against one of the Championship in-form sides in 2019. Preston may have stumbled in their home patch with stalemates but they have excelled of late on the road with six wins on the bounce. Reading will have their chances to score against Preston but the latter should prevail with another away triumph. My preview is to go with a seventh-straight away win for Preston.
