Reading v Blackburn Match Preview
A goalless draw at Sheffield Wednesday last time out was a useful point for Reading who are slowly dragging themselves to safety. They sit in 22nd occupying the final relegation spot but are just one point behind Rotherham.
At the Madejski, the Royals have won just one of their last seven but have taken four points from their last two. A lack of home goals has been an issue of late with just three netted in their last five.
Blackburn lost 1-0 at home to Bristol City in their previous fixture which made it back-to-back defeats in the league. They have dropped down in 13th and are now seven points and the same number of places from the play-offs.
Away from Ewood Park, Rovers have struggled with three defeats from their last four and just one victory in eight. They have the second worst road defence in the division having shipped 31 times.
After back-to-back defeats the visitors will be looking to get back on track here and they might settle for a point. Reading have taken three points from their last three and with Rotherham just one ahead of them they might take a share of the spoils also so that seems to be the logical bet.
These two teams have a combined 33 from 60 draws from their matches going into the half-time break and so as well taking the game to end in a draw have a play on that being the half-time result while also consider a double of these.
