Reading are one of the best teams this year. They will face bottom-side club Huddersfield Town at Select Car Leasing Stadium. Both sides will head into this fixture following a victory in their last league outings respectively.
Following a shocking 3-0 defeat against Sunderland, the host quickly bounced back by defeating Wigan Athletic by 1-0 in their most recent outing. Tom Ince was the only goal scorer in that game.
Moreover, they are yet to draw a single game in this campaign. Despite being third on the table, Paul Ince’s side have a negative goal difference. No other teams in the top four have a negative difference.
Nevertheless, the visitors ended their three-game losing streak by defeating Cardiff City by 1-0. It was Jordan Rhodes who scored the only goal in the eighth minute of that game. Manager Danny Schofield is relieved as this victory brought back confidence to the club.
Do also note that the team is just four points above bottom-most side Coventry. The recent form shows that they have lost three of their last five matches.
Against Cardiff City, Danny Schofield made an important by changing the team formation. This is one of the reasons why they won that game. The only concern for him is that goalkeeper Lee Nicholls received a yellow card last time.
