      Reading vs Walsall Predictions

       

      The Saddlers are hoping they will be visiting the Madejski in the league next season as they are going well in League One. They are currently in 3rd place having only lost 4 league matches all season and they’ve enjoyed some success in the cups that suggest this game will be no foregone conclusion.

      They have faced Championship opposition on 3 occasions this season and emerged victorious in each case. They won 4-3 at Nottingham Forest in the Capital One Cup before beating Brighton 2-1 in the next round. Dean Smith was their manager for both those games but he was in the opposing dug-out when Walsall knocked Brentford out in the FA Cup 3rd Round, 3 weeks ago.

      Therefore they certainly will fancy this and they are a good footballing team given their 3rd tier status so this has the potential to be an open game. Reading’s 3rd Round tie with Huddersfield saw 11 goals over the 2 matches with a 2-2 draw in Yorkshire followed by a 5-2 Reading win in the replay.

      The Royals were FA Cup Semi-Finalists last season and with their play-off hopes looking a very long shot in the league, they will definitely be eyeing up another decent cup run. Since the return of boss Brian McDermott, their form has been mixed but there have been a few entertaining games and both teams have scored in 4 of their last 5 matches.

      Walsall won’t come here merely thinking about scraping a replay and both teams have also scored in their last 3 outings therefore backing there to be goals at both ends here at Evens looks a solid bet.

      Reading are the favourites but there are only 11 place between the two clubs in the English football ladder and Walsall are in the better form so consider taking a punt on a 2-2 draw and a replay in the West Midlands at 16/1.
