Our prediction for this Championship match:
Reading and Bristol City take on each other at Madejski Stadium in what is expected to be a close encounter. Reading aim to put an end to their three-match winless run in the Championship, but beating Bristol City is easier said than done. Following a 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic, the Robins defeated Barnsley in their last league match to move a little closer to the play-offs berth.
Jamie Paterson, who was recalled from the Derby County loan spell earlier this month, is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Considering that the Royals do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the midweek fixture, we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing side. In their last meeting at Ashton Gate, Bristol City recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Reading.
