Our prediction for this Championship match:
After recording a come-from-behind 3-1 win over Luton Town at the weekend, Nottingham Forest will be looking to regain their spot in the top six with a victory over Reading in yet another home fixture. The Reds are determined to return to the Premier League, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to meet the goal. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Joe Lolley, who scored a brace in the 3-1 win over the Hatters.
The Royals, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss at Millwall. Reading are stuck in the middle of the standings, meaning that the hosts want this win more than the visitors. In their last meeting at the City Ground Nottingham Forest recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Reading, with Hillel El Arbi Soudani scoring the only goal of the match.
