Stoke vs Reading Match Preview

Stoke stretched their unbeaten run to six in midweek as they had their second successive goalless draw this time at Derby. Jack Butland was the star of the show in their fifth draw from the last six.

At the Bet365 Stadium, the Potters have been a mixed bag of late with three victories, one draw and three defeats in the last seven. Just one of the last eight in front of their own fans have gone over 2.5 goals.

Reading saw their three-game winning run come to an end in midweek going down 3-0 at home to Leeds. They are in 20th spot though they are just out of the bottom three on goal-difference.

Away from the Madejski Stadium, the Royals have won just one of their last 14 in the Championship. Nelson Oliveira has netted two goals from his last four appearances on the road.

Stoke are strong favourites to win here given home advantage and being a better team than Reading that said with little to play for it is hard to be siding with them. I would have been interested in the Royals but I was alarmed by that poor showing against Leeds in midweek so will look elsewhere to find the value.

Ten of the 18 that the Berkshire outfit have played on the road this season have been level going into the break and that looks an angle of attack. Also, extend this out and take a play on 0-0 in the half-time correct score market with both sides scoring over 60% of their goals this season after the break
