Reading under the microscope

Reading have made a brilliant start to the season, but that fell apart at Coventry at the weekend. They meet Preston this week aiming to return to form, but could their problems worsen?

The Royals have hit 1.89 goals per game in the league this season, but they’ve overperformed defensively. The hosts have conceded only 6% of the shots they’ve faced, while they’re yet to concede at home despite conceding 10 shots per game here.

Meanwhile, Preston come into this clash having scored 11 times this season, with 10 of those coming in four away games. The visitors have scored at least twice in each of those trips. Having seen Reading concede twice in their last two games, we see Preston causing problems.

Lucas Joao has played a key role in Reading’s good season and the forward struck for the fourth game on the spin on Friday night. We see him adding to that run with another goal, so we’re backing Joao to score this week.

However, we think that Reading’s good start could falter here, with Preston winning three straight away games in the Championship. Reading have overperformed at the back and that caught up with them against Coventry and we see that hurting them here, so a 2-1 Preston win is our correct score prediction.
