Fulham’s good run has finally come to an end as Brighton came back from a goal down to defeat them 2-1 on matchday 18. They were on a three match unbeaten run prior to the defeat, which includes some massive results like 5-0 home win against Huddersfield and a 1-1 draw against Sheffield Wednesday. Fulham are currently 10th in the league table with 25 points with the play-off spot currently lying at a 4 point distance.

Reading are currently going through a green patch in their season campaign as they picked up 5 wins in a row. They defeated Bristol City last weekend aided by two early goals in the first half. Their last four wins ever more impressive as they won them without conceding a goal. Reading are currently third in the Championship standings, 4 points below second placed Brighton.

Fulham vs Reading: Prediction

Reading are one of the most consistent sides in Championship at the moment. However, bookies have made Fulham the favourites to win this one based on a better head-to-head in recent seasons. But it is clearly evident that Fulham have struggled at home so far this season. They were only been able to register 2 wins from the 9 league matches this season. While Reading have picked up 4 wins and a draw from their last 6 away games. We believe Reading with their fine form are quite capable of taking at least a point from this game.
