Tip Reasoning

  • Birmingham City are unbeaten in their last five away matches (W2, D3).
  • Reading are unbeaten in their last four league starts (W2, D2).
  • All but one of Birmingham’s eight away games this term have produced under 2.5 goals.

Blues Tough to Break Down

Resurgent Reading may have to settle for a point at the Madejski Stadium on Wednesday evening when they face a Birmingham City side unbeaten in their last five away starts.

After four consecutive defeats, Reading have stopped the rot over the past fortnight with eight points collected from their last four matches and Saturday’s comfy 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest here lifted the Royals up to third in the Championship table.

The jury is still out, though, as to whether Veljko Paunovic’s charges are genuine promotion challengers and they face the kind of test that aspiring sides have to pass in the shape of Birmingham City this week.

As has become synonymous with boss Aitor Karanka, the limited Blues are set up to be hard to beat and it’s a style which particularly suits them on the road where they’ve lost just one of their eight games so far this term, drawing five.

With just five goals scored and four conceded on their travels, we expect City to park the proverbial bus again at the Madejski and we feel that could be good enough to earn them another stalemate.

The visitors have earned three 0-0 draws away from home this season and that’s potentially the best bet for any punters interested in the correct score market.
