Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Reading FC
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 13th March 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
The Championship league leaders, Wolverhampton, will be hosting the 19th place struggling Reading at the Molineux stadium in this matchup.
Nuno Santo’s men will be coming into this game having lost last weekend’s away game against Aston Villa. They were thrashed 4-1 by the 3rd place Aston Villa at the Villa Park after a showdown on Saturday afternoon. The Wanderers’ fans are not happy with the current team form since there has not been any consistency. This team has not won their last 4 in 5 matches and the second place Cardiff is almost catching up with them in the league standings.
The worst part of this loss at the Villa Park is that Danny Batth, the 24-year-old center defender was majorly blamed for the loss. This has even made the morale of the team to deteriorate and may affect them as they come into this home game. However, if they remain focused and acknowledge that they have a leader’s status to protect, they will definitely take the 3 points.
This team is currently in the 19th place in the league standings after gathering only 36 points after 36 games. Reading have not won 6 of their previous Championship matches and this have made them settle in the lower half of the table. Actually, if the team’s predicaments persist, Reading might end up messing things up and find themselves closer to the relegation zone before the end of the season.
Wolves vs Reading: Head-to-Head
Having won 3 encounters, Wolverhampton Wanderers are the dominant side in their last 5 meetings with Reading. There has been 1 draw whereas Reading have won once.
Wolves vs Reading: Prediction
In my opinion, reading is too weak for Wolverhampton Wanderers. Their current form does not stand out as an advantage against Wolverhampton which is a stronger Championship league side. I cannot foresee Wanderers losing the match whatsoever.
