Brentford vs Reading Match Preview

Brentford went into the international break on the back of a 3-0 road success at Wigan their fourth victory in the last five.  They sit ninth in the table and a strong defence has been key with only Leeds (nine) conceding a lower amount than the 13 they have let in.

At Griffin Park, the Bees need to pick up if they are to challenge for promotion as they have won just two of seven here with three finishing all-square.  They lost 1-0 to Huddersfield last time they played in front of their own fans meaning it’s just once win in four here.

Reading also won 3-0 ahead of the two-week pause as they defeated Luton 3-0 to make it ten points from their last four fixtures.  The results have picked up under Mark Bowen and they now sit in 17th five points and places above the relegation zone.

Away from the Madejski Stadium, the Royals have struggled this season winning just one of seven though three of these have been drawn.  Their road games have been low scoring producing just 15 in total which is only lowered by Preston (13).

Bookmakers make Brentford the strong favourites to win the game but just two of the seven they have played at Griffin Park have seen them take all three points.  If Reading had shown a little more away from home we might be willing to take them but as such we need to look elswhere for the value.

Five of the last six the Royals have played on the road have gone under 2.5 goals while five of seven here this season have also gone under this margin.  This looks the main bet then while a smaller value stake on under 1.5 also is a sensible approach.
