      Tip Reasoning

      This is a real contrast of styles. Cardiff are a defensively solid side and have only conceded 12 times in 15 matches this season but they’ve been struggling badly for goals of late. There have only been 2 goals in the last 5 matches involving them and they suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Leeds in midweek but were impressive 1-0 winners at home to title favourites Middlesbrough just a fortnight ago.

      They might just benefit from playing against an attacking Reading side that will come at them unlike some of their recent opponents so the Bluebirds fans should finally get to see a few goals here.

      Both teams have scored in all of their last 4 fixtures but they haven’t won any of them and were reliant on a late goal in midweek to rescue a 2-2 draw at home to Huddersfield. They also conceded 4 times in their most recent away game at Fulham and the constant leaking of goals is becoming a problem.

      Despite that Reading are the bookies favourites to win this match which is a bit of a surprise given Cardiff are only 2 points below them in the league and have won 5 of their last 7 home matches. Therefore the value here surely lies with the hosts and they can be backed at 6/5 to win in the ‘draw no bet’ market.

      In terms of a scoreline, it is still likely that Reading will score, as they have done in all of their last 9 matches. However Cardiff have just enough quality in their ranks to expose their defensive weaknesses and you can get them at 10/1 to win this one 2-1.
