Reading vs Derby County Prediction
Reading is on a winless streak in the campaign for the past four matches in the Championship but the host has managed to stay unbeaten in their recent three fixtures at home. The host will thus enjoy the ground advantage in the middle along with the 20-point lead they hold over the visitors on the table.
On the other hand, Derby has finally won a game after a long winless streak in their schedule. The Rams have a win to build on their form but defeating the Royals away from home is easier said than done for Rooney and his men. However, expect an open game with a couple of goals in ninety minutes.
The home win will be the ideal choice, but the safest option will probably be a draw no bet over Reading in full-time. Besides, the punters can also go with the tip for over 1.5 goals in the goals department of the encounter on Monday.
