Our prediction for this Championship match:
Cardiff City will be looking to build on a 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion when they welcome Reading at their Cardiff City Stadium on Friday evening. The triumph over the promotion-chasing side gave them a confidence boost, and we are positive that the hosts will go for a win in the clash against Reading. Lee Tomlin, who scored the winner against WBA, is likely to return to the starting XI.
The Royals, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form, with the team failing to win the previous four league fixtures. Reading failed to impress in a midweek loss to Bristol City, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Bluebirds. Cardiff City aim to move a little closer to the play-offs berth, and we predict that they are going to take advantage of the current situation in the Royals dressing room.
