Tip Reasoning

  • Reading held promotion-chasers QPR to a 3-3 draw at the weekend.
  • Peterborough have lost their last three games and have no points from two away games.
  • The Royals have conceded 16 goals in six games, Peterborough have conceded 14.

Royals can edge goal-fest

Reading and Peterborough meet on Tuesday in what could already be labelled as a relegation six-pointer despite the fact only six rounds of fixtures have been played.

Both sides have identical records with one win, one draw and four defeats so far and both look particularly weak at the back.  The Royals have the worst defensive record in the division having shipped in 16 goals so far, while Peterborough have conceded 14 after going down 6-2 at Sheffield United over the weekend.

It is hard to back either of these teams with a huge amount of confidence but as Reading claimed a 3-3 draw with a good QPR side at the Select Car Leasing Stadium on Saturday they may be able to follow that up with a three-point haul here. 

The Royals may be shipping goals but they haven’t struggled going forward and with 10 goals scored have the best attacking record outside the top 10, and that may prove the difference on Tuesday.  

Peterborough have managed six goals in their six games so far and given Reading’s issues at the back a home win with both teams to score is my main bet in this match up, while a 3-2 win for the Royals appeals for correct score bettors.
