Reason For Stoke City vs Reading Predictions

  • 22nd and 3 points short of safety, Stoke City remain in big trouble in the Championship table.
  • Nonetheless, the side are at least showing signs of life under new boss Michael O’Neill, winning 3 of his first 6 games in charge; more than they had managed in the 15 games prior to him coming in.
  • Reading aren’t having a great season themselves; 18th and just 5 points above the bottom 3.
  • The Royals have taken just 4 points from their last 5 games and don’t arrive in great spirits.

Stoke still in trouble but showing signs of life

It’s fair to say that not even the most pessimistic of Stoke fans could have seen the season transpring the way it has. On paper, The Potters have players that would suggest they should be competing at the top end of the Championship but instead they find themselves 22nd and 3 points short of safety.

Nathan Jones’ spell in charge simply didn’t go to plan but the team are at least showing some improvement under new boss Michael O’Neill. Indeed, since he has arrived at the bet365 Stadium, Stoke have won 3 of their 6 matches; more than they managed in the previous 15 games prior. A 3-0 win over Luton in midweek has confidence boosted in home ranks and they’ll come into Saturday’s game hungry for victory

Reading aren’t pulling up any trees

Meanwhile, after some exciting summer arrivals, Reading were hoping to perhaps be part of the play-off picture come May but that doesn’t look at all likely now. Indeed, The Royals haven’t functioned well as a unit in the action we’ve seen so far and come into the game a disappointing 18th and just 5 points above the drop zone.

Having taken just 4 points from their last 5 matches, Mark Bowen’s troops aren’t in good shape and confidence can’t be high coming into the game. Reading have also won just twice away from home all season in the Championship and that doesn’t leave their prospects looking the brightest coming into Saturday’s game.

Stoke to claim vital win

Ultimately, this is a match Stoke will fancy their chances in and it represents a good chance to continue their recent improvement. On paper, they have to be considered a stronger side than Reading and also with home advantage, they are clear favourites to secure victory.

All things considered, we see good value in backing a Stoke win and are happy to do so with maximum confidence. It was clear all was not well in home ranks when Nathan Jones was in charge and although they are not quite there yet, they are looking stronger now with a new manager in place and we fancy them to edge Saturday’s clash by a 1-0 margin; a scoreline 3 of Reading’s last 4 defeats have been by.
