English League Championship

Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn).

Pointless Reading continues the search for points on Wednesday this time against newly promoted Blackburn Rovers.

Rovers are still unbeaten having won already 5 points in their opening fixtures. That’s a decent record for a team that has won promotion in the previous season. Blackburn looks like a side both capable of defending well and looking sharp up front.

Blackburn opened the season with 2 draws but last round they took their first victory. They played at struggling Hull City and managed to put up a good performance and clinch a minimal victory. Bradley Dack was the author of the only goal which gave the team their first victory of the season.

If Reading fans though that their team played bad last year they couldn’t imagine the start this time. The Royals are struggling in all areas. Scoring just 1 goal in 3 league games the team netted 3 straight losses. Paul Clement boys are really in trouble and the manager need to somehow lift their spirits before it’s too late.

Reading suffered a defeat that put the team in serious doubts. Home loss to Bolton is something that raised a lot of eyebrows. The Royals dominated possession but in fact had less chances then Wanderers.

Blackburn vs Reading: Head-to-head

  • Blackburn is unbeaten in 4 games in all competitions
  • Reading has 3 straight league losses

Blackburn vs Reading: Predictions

Blackburn are looking decent since the start of the season and unless the team’s results worsen significantly their fans should be confident of survival.

The team play well and against a struggling Reading side at home should be considered the favorite.

Reading are looking abysmal and the team needs some kind of a heavy morale boost.
