Tough Test For Reading As Brentford Visit
10 February 2021
By Hob Nob Anyone?
Reading face a huge test tonight as they take on Brentford behind closed doors at the Madejski Stadium. The Bees are flying high and looking to go top after an amazing run of 20 league games unbeaten in the Championship. Brentford were 4-1 away winners at Middlesbrough on Saturday - a result that saw them climb into second place and just a single point behind leaders Norwich with a game in hand. That game is hand is of course tonight against Reading and they will be hoping and almost expecting a draw or win that will see them become league leaders.
Brentford are firm favourites for victory given their amazing form - find here on sportsbetting24 However, Reading are also on a good unbeaten league run of seven matches that stretches back to 19 December last year. That defeat was of course the 1-3 reverse at Brentford. Hopefully things will turn out different for the Royals this time with players back from injury compared to our last messing. We will also have the slight advantage of playing at home. A Reading win would close the gap on the top two and keep our own automatic promotion hopes alive.
The Royals have no new injury worries and should be able to put a stronger side than the one than last time when we were missing Swift, Joao, Meite, and Richards. Tonight's game kicks-off at 19:00 but is not being screened on Sky.
