Market: Reading to win against Ipswich Town
Odds: 5/4 @ Ladbrokes
Reading host Ipswich in the Championship on Friday, in a game that could go either way in truth. Both sides are in good form ahead of this week’s clash, so it’s a tough one to call. Despite the pair in decent shape of late, there are 10 places separating each other in the table, and victory for Reading could see them bridge the gap to just a point, so they perhaps have more motivation to get a result in front of their own fans.
Currently 13th in the league, Reading are hoping to make a climb ahead of this weekend’s games by getting an early advantage. The Royals are unbeaten in their last four games, and are coming off the back of an impressive away win against Brentford. They have picked up one too many draws, but now they have finally ended a long wait to pick up all three points, Reading will be full of confidence with home advantage.
Ipswich Town are no slouches, however. The Tractor boys are third in the league table after five games, and have won three of their last four. If they have a weakness it could be how the side respond after their most recent defeat to Brighton. Ipswich’s form has been solid both home and away, and they will fancy their chances of beating a Reading side with only one win from five played.
Both Reading and Ipswich Town can stake a claim to come away with all three points, but the Royals could well nick it on Friday given their growing momentum. Town saw their fine form dramatically halted by defeat, so they may not respond in an ideal fashion to get a result.
