Reason For Reading vs Huddersfield Predictions

  • Reading have won only one of their last eight home league matches
  • Huddersfield have collected four points from their last two games, keeping consecutive clean sheets
  • Both teams have scored in only one of Huddersfield’s last six league games

Royals could struggle to follow up

Reading all but secured their Championship survival with an emphatic 5-0 win at Luton on Saturday but a visit from rejuvenated relegation rivals Huddersfield requires plenty more.

The Royals won the shot count 16-5 in their win at Kenilworth Road, with Yakou Meite bagging four goals, but it was a first win in four since football’s resumption and this is evidently harder.

Prior to thumping Luton, Reading had suffered defeats against promotion-chasing pair Derby and Brentford while being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Stoke, who boast the third-worst away form in the division.

Reading have collected only 24 points in 20 home league games this term, with only Birmingham and Hull less efficient on their own patch. In fact, the Royals have won only one of their last eight home league matches and we are predicting them to disappoint at the Madejski again.

Terriers have what it takes to avoid the drop

Huddersfield have enhanced their Championship survival claims with four points from their last two games against Birmingham and Preston and they can pick up another positive result at Reading.

The Terriers were 3-0 winners at Birmingham and were boosted by the returns from injury of Fraizer Campbell and Steve Mounie, while they were tenacious in the goalless draw at home to playoff-seeking Preston with the highflying visitors failing to register a shot on target.

With only a two-point buffer on those teams in the relegation places, Huddersfield can’t afford to give up the ghost and this is a match Danny Cowley would have targeted as a potential victory.

Despite their struggles, Huddersfield have picked up points in nine of their 20 away league games, recording wins over relegation rivals Stoke, Charlton and Hull.

Cowley has made Huddersfield hard to beat again and with quality in attack through the likes of Campbell, Karlan Grant and Elias Kachunga, the Terriers could claim a valuable three points at the Madejski.

Nervy encounter expected at the Madejski

Both teams have scored in only one of Huddersfield’s last six league games and we are predicting another tense affair when they travel to Reading.

There’s little to separate these sides – there’s just six points between them – and given both still have work to do to secure their Championship status we are expecting this to be tight.

Huddersfield arguably have the greater quality in the final third and after two good performances they look like getting their revenge on Reading, who won the reverse fixture in Yorkshire 2-0.

Our prediction for correct score punters is a 1-0 away win – three of Huddersfield away victories have been recorded by that scoreline.
