Bitesize Prediction: Peterborough vs Reading – 16/02/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport

Two sides who really find themselves battling it out at the foot of the Championship table, Peterborough will welcome Reading to London Road on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, suffering a late 1-0 loss at home against Preston over the weekend, Peterborough still find themselves in an uphill battle to extend on their Championship status this season. Facing what is a must-win showdown at London Road on Wednesday night, the Posh have really failed to build off of their 2-0 win against QPR from earlier in the month. Opening the midweek fixtures sat two points adrift of their relegation rivals, Darren Ferguson’s men have recorded just a single victory since a 3-1 win against Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup on January 8th. With their recent issues highlighted by a 4-0 drumming at the hands of Cardiff last week, Peterborough have also shown some extended issues on home soil. Aside from that 2-0 victory against QPR, Ferguson’s side have lost their other three Championship outings at London Road.

As for the visitors, while Head Coach Veljko Paunović might still find himself in charge, Reading are enduring a second-tier nightmare. Freefalling their way down the Championship table and dealing with some issues behind the scenes, the Royals now hold just a two-point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone. In fact, last seen a few days ago getting hit with an action-packed 3-2 defeat at home against Coventry, the midweek guests have lost each of their last eight straight outings on the spin. Now tipped by many as a leading pick in this year’s relegation scrap, Reading have only continued to show a string of glaring issues at the back. Including a 4-0 drumming at the hands of QPR when signing off January, they have failed to record a single clean sheet since the middle of October.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Peterborough vs Reading 4/11 for Wednesday’s Championship battle @ 888sport
