Fulham vs Reading Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture features two sides in search of points at opposite ends of the Championship table.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Fulham made it 19 matches unbeaten in the Championship last out as they beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0.  They had to wait before Aleksandar Mitrovic wrapped up the three points their performance deserved.

Reading made it two victories from their last three with a 1-0 defeat of Preston at the weekend.  The Royals rode their luck at times but a Mo Barrow goal saw them take a big step towards safety.

The reverse fixture came ended in a 1-1 draw despite the Cottagers having Tomas Kalas dismissed in the first minute.  Liam Kelly put the hosts ahead but Lucas Piazon netted eight minutes from time to ensure it ended all-square.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given their strong recent form Fulham are not a side I am looking to take on though by the same token the price is so short you would not get much from backing them.  I would instead recommend a few plays on the correct score market. Reading have lost at Aston Villa and Wolves by the same 3-0 scoreline in recent times and that looks worth pairing along with 2-0.

Fulham Preview

The Cottagers have won 15 and drawn four of their last 19 Championship fixtures a remarkable run that has moved them third.  They have closed the gap to just two points on Cardiff in second though the Welsh side have a game in hand.

At Craven Cottage, they are unbeaten in their last 12 matches winning ten of these including ten of their last 11.  The London outfit have netted at least two goals in each of their last nine at their own ground.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is in great goalscoring form and has netted nine times in his last nine league appearances.  In each of their last three and six of their last eight Fulham have kept a clean-sheet

 

Fulham Team News

They have no registered injuries or suspensions ahead of this game

 

Reading Preview

The Royals have won two of their last three and are five points above the relegation zone though Barnsley have a game in hand.  Two of their next five are on the road to Fulham and Cardiff so they must take advantage of the other three ties.

Away from the Madejski Stadium, with just one point from their last five and one victory in the last ten which came at Burton.  Each of their last three and five of their last six on the road have gone over 2.5 goals.

Around 64% of the league goals that Reading have scored this season have come in the second-half with 47% in the final 30 minutes.  The Berkshire outfit are unbeaten in the last four head-to-heads.

 

Reading Team News

Dave Edwards will miss the game through suspension.  Tyler Blackett (knock), Axel Andresson (ankle), Callum Harriott, Paul McShane (both hamstring), Tommy Elphick, Joe Mendez and Stephen Quinn (all knee) are doubts.  Jordan Obita (ligament) and Gareth McCleary (broken ankle) are out for the remainder of the season.
