Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this match with a completely injury-free group available to select from.
Team News: Reading
Thanks to a largely available group of players, there is only a single fitness problem for the Reading manager Veljko Paunović to be concerned with. George Pușcaș (Surgery) misses out for this game.
We’re of the opinion that Wycombe Wanderers will have to play well to put one past this Reading lineup who we think will likely score & stay on top.
Therefore, we predict a hard-fought 0-1 winning margin for Reading at the end of this one.
Looking forward to this.
