Tip Reasoning

  • Fulham are unbeaten in five straight away games.
  • Reading are winless in five consecutive home games.
  • Fulham are the highest scoring Championship side, averaging 2.2 scored per-match.

Relegation-threatened Reading will struggle

Reading have been plagued by inconsistency of late, with each of their last six games ending with differing results (W2, D2, L2). A continuation of that trend would see them avoid defeat here, though if they fail to score as they did in two of their last four home games, they will likely lose against a cutthroat Fulham attack.

Seven of Reading’s last eight defeats came without reply and that could yet again be the case if the bookmakers have priced this game up correctly.

Damningly, Reading come up against the league’s second best defensive outfit in Fulham – Reading’s return of 1.5 scored goals per home league game could be significantly lowered by that fact.

Fulham to have a happy new year

A five-game winless run ahead of this clash has left Fulham’s place in the top-two looking like evermore tenuous. However, they will hope to bounce back here against a side who could be sucked into the bottom-three come the end of the round.

The Cottagers have lost just two away league games all season (W6, D3) and as such, they will be hoping to bounce back at short odds after squandering a half-time lead to draw 1-1 in each of their last two trips.

Overall, I think Fulham look like the most likely winners here and I am predicting a workmanlike 2-0 victory to raise their spirits ahead of the new year. Expect both sides to look uncharacteristically fresh here after both sides’ Boxing Day clashes fell foul of COVID postponements.
