Derby County head into the clash after a 2-0 Championship win with the defeat of Luton Town in their most recent match.

In that match, Derby County managed 43% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 5 on target. For Derby County, the goals were scored by Lee Gregory (7') and Graeme Shinnie (49'). For their opponents, Luton Town had 13 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target.

A tendency of at least one team drawing a blank in games involving Derby County has become evident of late. Examining their last six outings shows that this has happened 5 times. In these clashes, their opponents have hit a goal tally of 5 and The Rams have scored 4. That being said, it remains to be seen if that trend shall be maintained in this upcoming game.

Heading into this contest, Derby County have not won away from home in their last 5 league matches.

👥 Head to head

A glance at their past head to head clashes stretching back to 24/02/2018 shows that Reading have won 2 of these & Derby County 3, with the tally of draws standing at 1.

A combined sum of 20 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 11 of them from The Royals and 9 being from The Rams. The average goals per game has been 3.33.

The previous league game between these clubs was Championship match day 1 on 12/09/2020 which ended up with the score at Derby County 0-2 Reading.

On that day, Derby County managed 57% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 2 on target.

On the other side, Reading got 8 shots at goal with 3 on target. Lucas João (40') and Ovie Ejaria (45') scored.

The referee was Darren Bond.

📋 Team News: Reading

There’s just a single fitness concern for the Reading manager Veljko Paunović to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. John Swift (Hamstring Injury) will miss out.

📋 Team News: Derby County

Derby boss Wayne Rooney has not got a full squad to pick from. Curtis Davies (Achilles tendon rupture) and Krystian Bielik (Torn knee ligament) will not be playing here.

💡 Prediction

In our view, Derby County will really need to work well to get anything against this Reading outfit who we think might well do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.

We therefore fancy a narrow 1-0 victory for Reading when the referee blows for full-time.

Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
