Reading vs West Brom Match Preview
Reading were on course for a valuable three points at Bristol City on Easter Friday but were pegged back in the 72nd minute and in the end it finished 1-1. It means they are now three unbeaten and have lost just one of the last six. They sit 19th in the table and are five points above the bottom three.
At the Madejski, the Royals have won five, drawn two and lost just one of their last eight league fixtures. Five of the last six at this ground have seen both teams score and the same number of matches going under 2.5 goals. Yakou Meite has four goals from his last four appearances at this ground.
West Brom confirmed their end of season appearance in the play-offs with a 3-2 home victory over Hull on Friday. The result also keeps alive their slim automatic promotion hopes as they can still make 85 points with both Sheffield United and Leeds on 82. After this match they end the season with a home tie against Rotherham and then away at Derby.
Away from the Hawthorns, the Baggies are struggling having lost each of their last two and three of the previous four. Just two of their last eight on their travels in the Championship have seen both teams find the back of the net. Four of the last five goals they have conceded on the road have come before the half-time break.
The visitors are strong favourites to win this game and while that is deserved we think Reading who have lost just one of their last eight at home also must be respected. With both teams in form it might pay to look at other markets for the selections.
Both teams are blessed with goalscorers and as such it might pay to take a couple of player bets to score at any time. For the hosts, Yakou Meite continues to do the business with five in five and represents value here. For Albion, Dwight Gayle is an obvious call but at bigger prices we like Stefan Johansen who was given licence to get forward as the Black Country outfit played a 3-5-2 on Friday.
