Tip Reasoning

  • Reading are without a clean sheet in their last five games.
  • The hosts are plagued with injuries and will be without a number of key players.
  • The visitors can continue chasing down a top-six place with a win here.

Points deduction is a hefty blow for Reading

The hosts were handed a six-point deduction for breaching financial rules and it was expected, but nonetheless a bit disappointing. They claimed victory at Birmingham City before the international break and those three points seem even more crucial now, especially as they were on a four-game losing streak prior to that win and it looked possible that they could be on their way to a demotion to the third tier of English football for the first time since 1998. However, The Royals have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five games so it might not be long before that talk resumes.

The visitors thrashed Preston North End 3-0 at The City Ground before the break to secure their sixth win from their 10 games since the departure of former manager Chris Hughton. That run of form has seen Nottingham Forest go within touching distance of the top six and keep the dream of returning to the top flight for the first time in 22 years, alive.

Forest to prove too much for a depleted Reading outfit

Reading aren’t having a good time at the moment, both on and off the field. They have a thin squad due to the number of injuries and they play host to a side who have the bit between their teeth and want to push up the table. We think that Nottingham Forest get the job done here in an entertaining game, ultimately winning by a single goal.
