Reading have won none of their last five away league matches against Blackpool since a 2-0 win back in 2001-02 season. Their victory away to Preston was Veljko Paunovic’s final game in charge which ended their run of 5 games on the road without a win.
We feel that a win for home team is up for cards as the visitors are poor at away fixtures while the hosts are better home winning thrice of the last 5 games at home.
