Reading vs Derby Match Preview
Reading were somewhat fortunate to come up with a point in their last game which was a goalless draw at Stoke. It is back-to-back draws for the Berkshire side with no victory in their last three and just one in their last six.
At the Madesjki Stadium, the Royals were last in action a fortnight ago where they found themselves going down 3-2 at home to Birmingham. It is back-to-back home defeats for Mark Bowen and his side who had won the three prior to that.
Derby are looking to bounce following up from a 1-0 home loss to Millwall last time out in a game they can consider themselves unlucky not to get something from. It is five without a victory for the East Midlands outfit who have lost three of these.
Away from Pride Park, the Rams were last in action two weeks ago and that resulted in 1-0 loss away to Blakburn. Phillip Cocu will be looking to find some form on the road as his County team have lost five successive matches and failed to net in any of those.
The Royals are favourites to win this win and given their home advantage it is hard to argue with that but the prices do not appeal on an inconsistent team. Derby have been so poor on the road though you would not be backing them either.
Given the Rams are without a goal in their last five on the road while Reading have blanked in three of their last six going against both teams to score looks the value call here. In addition, given the poor scoring record of County on the road take an interest on a home clean sheet.
