Birmingham vs Reading Match Preview

Birmingham were in FA Cup action on Wednesday evening and despite a spirited showing they lost away to Premier League Leicester.  In the league, the Midlands outfit drew 2-2 with QPR in their last fixture to make it four successive draws and no defeat in ten.

At St Andrew’s, the Blues have drawn three and won one of their last four with all four of these opponents in the top-half of the table.  Each of the last seven at this ground have seen both teams score with five of these going over 2.5 goals.

Reading were also in FA Cup action but they had an extra day of rest playing Tuesday and losing after extra-time at home to Sheffield United.  In the league, they picked up a victory in their last game seeing off Barnsley 2-0 and they sit 16th one place and two points off their opponents here.

Away from the Madejski Stadium, the Royals have lost just two of their last ten with one of these defeats coming at Elland Road.  Yakou Meite and Sam Baldock have netted two goals each from their last three appearances on the road.

It is hard to argue with the prices on offer here which reflect the fact that these teams are only seperated by a few points but that the Blues have home advantage.  Better value can be found in the goalscorer market where he have identified a possible goalscorer for each side.

For the hosts, Scott Hogan grabbed a brace last weekend against QPR and has six in his last seven Championship games.  For the visitors, Yakou Meite has two in his last three on the road and three in his last four against Birmingham.
