Reading vs Burton Albion
England League Championship
Date: Saturday, 19th November 2016,
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Madejski Stadium, Reading.

Reading are on a hot run of form after beating Wigan 3-0 away from home last time out. This is their third league win in a row and that too without conceding. The recent results also propelled them to fourth position in the league table. Coming back to the matchday 17 to their home ground, they will be eyeing nothing less than a win to keep the momentum going.

Burton held Barnsley to a goal-less draw in their last round fixture to stay away from the relegation zone. They are currently 18th in the table with 18 points, which is just 4 point short of the Wigan at the 22nd in the table.

Reading vs Burton: Head-to-head stats

The lone competitive meeting Reading and Burton happened during the first round of the 2009/10 League Cup. This was Burton’s debut appearance in the Cup competition, but crashed out after suffering a heavy loss to Reading by a 5-1 margin.

Reading vs Burton: Head-to-head stats

Reading are a team to beat at the moment who are impressing with their disciplined football. They have picked up three wins in a row, while at home they were defeated only once in 8 matches this season. And on current form, they look good for a place in the play-off at the end of the season, if not an automatic qualification.

Burton are a fairly good enough side, but they are still way off the Championship quality. They are a team that depends on high work rate and tactical organization to edge out points. So there is no doubt that the minnows will frustrate Reading to a large extend. But we believe, the hosts are more than capable to squeeze a hard earned victory on Saturday evening.

Predicted Full-Time Score is a 2-0 win for Reading at 9/1 (10.00).
