EFL Championship

Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Select Car Leasing Stadium.

It is hard to believe that West Brom are languishing in the relegation zone this season. They will look to end their losing woes as they will travel to Select Car Leasing Stadium to play against Reading.

Reading have fallen from the top four race. The team led by Paul Ince are now winless in their last two games. In their most recent league outing, they fell to a strong QPR side by 2-1. In that game, Andy Carroll managed to score a penalty at the half-hour mark.

It is interesting to note that West Brom have won only a single game this campaign. They were held by Luton Town on a goalless draw most recently. Moreover it is surprising to find that over 60% of their matches have ended in a stalemate.

Paul Ince’s side now have a decent opportunity to end their their winless run as the visitors have won only once since the beginning of this season.

A new trend that has emerged is that in the last three matches, five different players scored all the goals for Paul Ince’s team. This is very beneficial for them as the game plan will not just focus on the strikers.
