West Brom are unbeaten in their previous 10 league matches at home and are also not beaten in the league by Reading in their last 4 games. Reading at home provides the perfect platform for them to back that up with another positive performance.

The visitors are no pushovers, particularly when considering that they have picked up four points from their last two league games. However, the new found confidence and strength-in-depth of West Brom should shine through here and a home win has to be favored.
