Reading vs Blackburn Predictions & Match Preview

Reading vs Blackburn
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 13th February 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK / 21.00 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium (Reading).

Rovers still have a chance to finish in the top 6, as they have to win the remaining matches. But it is not happening right now, as they suffer 2 losses on the trot. The Riversiders’ weakness lies in their defense, as they conceded 1.56 goals per match. The lack of coordination and quality of players in the defensive has hit them hard. Tony Mowbray and his troop have quality up front, as that is the only thing that keeps in contention.

The Royals are on verge of possible relegation, as they lost 15 matches in this season alone. Their recent form is also not good, as they won a match in the last 7. Jose Gome’s tactic is not working, as he always uses two upfront and plays long hopeful balls from the back. The absence of a quality player in the top has also contributed to their losing cause.
