📏 Form Guide

Reading
Reading
WLLLLW

Reading, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 1-2 Championship triumph versus Birmingham City.

In that match, Reading managed 63% possession and 14 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Reading was Jahmari Clarke (70', 82'). Birmingham City had 17 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Scott Hogan (3') was the scorer for Birmingham City.

It has not been often in recent times that Reading have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Reading have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 9 goals in the process. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be sustained into this match, though.

Going into this game, the form guide shows that Reading:

  • haven't lost in the league to Nottingham Forest in their last 5 games.
  • haven’t won at home in the past 2 matches in the league.

Their previous form shows that Nottingham Forest:

  • have not won against Reading when they have played them away from home in the previous 6 league matches. Not good.
