Reading vs West Brom Match Preview

Reading were held to a 1-1 draw at home the last match-day by Hull. It really must have hurt that the guests fired in the equalizer in the 83rd minute. 

It was the seventh winless game in a row for Reading, and their ninth in the last ten fixtures. It was also the fifth winless fixture at home on the trot. 

With teams below them picking up pace, Reading are inviting disaster if they fail to get back to their winning ways. The fear of relegation has kicked the squads below them into action.

Meanwhile, West Brom won 0-2 on the road against Millwall, and made amends for the recent blips they had. They still are at the top of the table, and are on course to get into the Premier League.

Right now, more than the Championship title, the team must be prioritizing the promotion to the English top flight.

Reading vs West Brom Prediction

West Brom have been the best team in the competition this season without a doubt, and their stats more than justify this tag. They have scored the most number of goals, and also have been the best team on the road. Moreover, in 2019-20, every other single team in the league have lost double or more games than that of West Brom.

On the other hand, Reading have been suffering in games for quite some time. In fact, since the New Year Day, the team has not recorded a single Championship win. It also requires mention that in the period, Reading could secure a total of one victory, and it had come in the FA Cup, against a team from the League One.

Considering these overwhelming pointers, we arrive to the conclusion that West Brom are in line to deliver a dominating win this Wednesday.
