Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Reading v Wycombe Wanderers can be found here - as well as the best betting odds.
Reading prepare for this match after a 0-0 Championship drawn result against Middlesbrough.
In that match, Reading managed 64% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target.
Their more recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that it has been a great time for the Reading backline. The Royals have been mean at the back, seeing the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their last 6 clashes standing at 2.
Analysis of their past results shows that Reading:
- have not been beaten in the league by Wycombe Wanderers in their last 5 matches.
- are unbeaten in their last 2 home league matches.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Millwall in Championship action, Wycombe Wanderers and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that game, Wycombe Wanderers had 38% possession and 7 attempts at goal with 3 on target. The only player to score for Wycombe Wanderers was Scott Kashket (9'). For their opponents, Millwall had 17 attempts on goal with 6 on target. Jed Wallace (48') and Ryan Leonard (63') scored for Millwall.
It has become apparent that Wycombe Wanderers have had real problems scoring goals over their previous 6 encounters, contributing the poor return of just 2. In those fixtures, The Blues have also seen the collective goal tally of their opponents equal 13. With no two games being the same, time will tell whether that pattern might continue on in this next match.
Coming into this contest, Wycombe Wanderers haven’t won away from home in the past 3 league games.
Head to head
A study of past results between these clubs going back to 24/04/2000 reveals that these fixtures have been a source of anguish for Wycombe Wanderers. They have not managed to register any victories at all while Reading have been superior, finishing as winners in 67% of those games where they have faced each other.
A sum of 13 goals were scored between them in this period, with 10 of them from The Royals and 3 for The Blues. That is an average goals per game value of 2.17.

We believe that Reading will more than likely get the win and a possible clean sheet when they meet Wycombe Wanderers, who could well find it tough getting on the scoresheet.
We’re therefore expecting to see a pretty comfortable 2-0 margin for Reading by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
