Royals on a run
Reading are unbeaten in their last four Championship games (W3 D1) and that run has kept them in the playoff spots. They’re out to continue that run when they meet fourth-bottom Birmingham.
This has been a happy hunting ground for the Royals of late. Reading have won three of their last four away league matches against Birmingham City (L1).
Only Luton Town (8) have scored fewer Championship goals than Birmingham City (9) in 2021, with the Blues losing eight of their matches since the turn of the year (W3 D3). Following that form, the visitors are worth backing for the points.
Reading have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four games. With Birmingham in terrible form our correct score prediction is a 1-0 win for the Royals.
