Reading 10/11 to beat Sheffield Wednesday in Saturday’s Championship contest
Market: Reading win
Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport
Looking to extend their stay in the play-off positions this weekend, Reading will host a struggling Sheffield Wednesday from behind closed doors on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, managing to make a return to form over the past week, Reading still have a play-off finish at the top of their agenda this year. In their 34 Championship matchups so far this season, they have recorded 17 wins, six draws and 11 defeats, scoring 46 and conceding 37 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 57, the Royals open this weekend’s fixtures sat fifth in the table and still holding a three-point buffer from slipping out of the top-six. As for their recent run of results, last seen picking up a 1-0 victory against Blackburn on home soil in midweek, Reading have collected back-to-back Championship victories after their blip last month. Despite their recent issues on home soil, there is no doubt that Saturday’s hosts should be smelling a real chance this weekend.
As for the visitors, only continuing on what has been a hugely worrying run of form, Sheffield Wednesday still find themselves in the midst of a real relegation scrap. In their 33 Championship matchups so far this season, they have recorded nine wins, seven draws and 17 defeats, scoring 24 and conceding 40 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 28 after their points deduction last summer, The Owls open this weekend’s fixtures sat down in 23rd and now seven points adrift of finding a route out of the drop zone. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-1 defeat against Rotherham in midweek, Sheffield Wednesday have lost each of their last six Championship contests on the bounce. Also losing four straight contests on the road, we’re backing a similar home victory this weekend.
