Reading vs Leeds Match Preview
Reading received a massive boost in their survival hopes as they came from 2-1 down in the 89th minute to beat Wigan 3-2. The win moved them into 19th spot and three places and three points above the relegation places.
At the Madejski Stadium, the Royals are unbeaten in their last five having won three of these matches. John Swift is in good goalscoring form in front of his own fans having netted three in the last five.
Leeds made it back-to-back league victories and kept the pressure on Norwich with a 1-0 success at Bristol City. Patrick Bamford has four goals in his last four appearances but is an injury concern after going off last time.
Away from Elland Road, it has been a mixed bag for United of late with three victories, one draw and three defeats in their last seven. None of their last three on the road have gone over 2.5 and produced just four goals in total.
Despite the gulf in class between these two sides I think it is worth taking on the high-flying visitors. Reading and the draw in the double chance market is worth a play on a side who are strong at home against visitors who have been a little flat on the road and have concerns over their key striker.
John Swift has netted in three of his last five appearances in front of his own fans and the Royals man looks worth siding with in the to score anytime market.
