Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought win at Hull City, Barnsley will be looking to extend their winning run in the Championship to four games when they take on Reading at Madejski Stadium. The Tykes have been showing signs of improvement of late, but despite winning the previous three league fixtures, they are still sitting in the relegation zone. Barnsley are high on spirits ahead of Saturday’s football match, and we are positive that they will rely on their rock-solid defence against Reading.
The Tykes are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the Championship. The Royals, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Leeds United and Wigan Athletic, but seeing that the visitors want this win more than the hosts, we are tempted to put our money on the relegation strugglers. In the first half of the season the two teams shared the spoils at Oakwell.
