      Reading vs West Brom Predictions


      They have creeped into this round with two replay wins over lower division sides. They won 1-0 at Bristol City in the 3rd Round and needed penalties to win at Peterborough in the last round. Sometimes you watch them and wonder why they aren’t in the middle of the relegation battle but their dogged 1-0 win at Everton last weekend proved once more that Tony Pulis’ men are made of stern stuff.

      Reading are having a disappointing season in the league but much like last year the FA Cup has given them something to cheer about. They made the Semi-Finals last year and have beaten Huddersfield and Walsall to make the last 16 again here. Their league form is poor though and they are winless in 6 Championship matches.

      Reason for Betting Tips

      West Brom are clearly a side that knows how to grind out a result and they possess all the physical prowess and organisation to cope with Championship opposition. They’ve only lost 1 of their last 7 matches and will be really targeting this game with a safe mid-table Premier League finish looking highly likely. There aren’t usually many goals in games involving them and the last two games at the Madejski Stadium have finished 0-0. 1 goal could settle it and a bit of Premier League quality might decide it in favour of the visitors so a 1-0 away win looks good value at 6/1.

      Recent Form

      All competitions, most recent first:

      Reading: DDLWDW

      West Brom: WDLDDD


      The sides have been paired together in the FA Cup 3 times in the last 10 years with Reading progressing every time.


      5 of Reading’s last 30 matches have ended in 1-0 defeats and there have been under 2.5 goals in 60% of their matches in 2016. There have been under 2.5 goals in 6 of the last 7 games involving West Brom.

      Team News

      Reading: Yann Kermorgant is cup-tied while Matej Vydra is likely to miss out through injury.

      West Brom: Tony Pulis is unlikely to tinker with the side that won 1-0 at Everton last weekend.
