Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by a 3-2 win over Millwall, Derby will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Reading at an empty Pride Park. The Rams restarted the season in great manner, but they need to keep on raising their form if they are to book their place in the playoffs. Talented midfielder Louie Sibley scored a hat-trick in the 3-2 win over the Lions, meaning that Reading defenders should have him at bay.
Seeing that head coach Garry Rowett has a full squad to choose from, home win should definitely be considered. The Royals, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Stoke in their first game after the coronavirus break. Lucas Joao, who picked up a knock against the Potters, is rated doubtful for the Derby game. Anyhow, home win should be considered as the Rams aim to keep their Championship playoffs hopes alive.
