Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Stoke City vs Reading

Stoke City

Sitting 20th in the table after a third Championship defeat in a row, Stoke City anxiously await their first league victory of the new year. The Potters’ latest loss at Bramall Lane (3-1), which marked the seventh straight league game to see them concede first, has piled even more pressure on boss Alex Neil.

The arrival of Reading at least provides some encouragement, as Stoke haven’t lost a home league match to the visitors since 2005 (W3, D3). A failure to score in consecutive home league outings for the second time this season suggests their troubles are not entirely defensive.

Reading

Reading arrive in the Potteries on a three-game winless league run after surrendering a two-goal lead last time out against Queens Park Rangers to draw 2-2. That’s seen them lose ground on the play-off places, though manager Paul Ince will believe nothing is lost yet.

The visitors will need to better their away league record immediately in order to have a shot at the top six, as Reading have picked up only 11 of their 37 points this term on the road (W3, D2, L9).

Stoke City vs Reading Prediction

Stoke’s recent three-match losing run will be hanging over their shoulders as they are desperately seeking to pick up all three points. Considering Reading’s better results throughout the season, we will back a double chance of a draw or away win.

Safe Bet

The average number of the total corners awarded in Stoke City’s games is 10.89 while in reading’s matches is 9.59. With odds of 1.50 at 1xBet, we predict seeing over eight corners in this match.

Highlighted Player

Nick Powell has scored three league goals this term, all inside his last 11 Championship outings and as Stoke‘s first goal-scorer each time. A two-goal hero from the last round, Reading‘s Jeff Hendrick is also on three league strikes this season, with all his three goals coming in draws.
