The visitors represent an ideal opposition for the struggling Preston side here. Reading are one of just two teams without a victory in six games of the season and they sit at the very foot of the Championship standings as a consequence.

Paul Clement will be desperate to see his men bouncing back at the Deepdale. Another failure could force the board to look for alternative solutions on the bench even though it’s still too early in the season.

Preston vs Reading: Head-to-head

Reading have a positive head to head record against the Lilywhites (11 wins to 9).

Preston were, however, much more successful in H2H games at Deepdale where they won 8, drew 2 and lost 2 of 12 so far.

Each of last four head to head games saw home teams snatching the spoils.

Preston vs Reading: Prediction

The home court plays a big role whenever these two likes take on each other. It could be the case this time out as well given the Lilywhites are yet to suffer a defeat at Deepdale this season. They won two and drew two at home in all competitions.

Knowing the Royals are yet to pick up their first win of the season, it’s hard to ignore the 1.80 odds offered for the home win bet here. Also, Preston bagged two or more goals in each of last three home games across competitions. The streak includes two goals within the opening 16 minutes of the previous round tie with Bolton Wanderers (ended in a 2-2 draw).

The alternative bet will thus be Preston to bag two or more goals in the match at the odds of 2.00.

Preston vs Reading: Bet Tips

  • Preston to win @ 1.80 (4/5)
  • Preston Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 2.00 (1/1).
