Our football match prediction:
Huddersfield Town have been in a splendid form of late. The Terriers are on a five-match winning run in the Championship and they came from behind to beat Rotherham United in their last league fixture. To make things even better for the fans, the promotion-chasing team did well to hold star-studded Manchester City to a goalless draw in Saturday’s FA Cup clash and, no doubt, the hosts are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Reading. Coach David Wagner mixed the squad against Man City, but we predict that he is going to field the best possible side against the Madejski Stadium outfit. The Royals were not into action at the weekend and despite the fact that they are on a six-game unbeaten run in the league, we believe that the hosts will pick up all three points from Tuesday’s football match at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Tommy Smith):
Tommy Smith is an English player who was born in Warrington on 14 April, 1992. The defender plays for Huddersfield Town, but he used to play for the likes of Manchester City and Tranmere Rovers during his youth career as well. His main position is right back and it is no surprise he has yet to score for the Terriers, speaking of league games. The defender, though, found scored his first goal for the Terries in the 5-2 FA Cup loss to Reading on 19 January, 2016. Tommy Smith made his Huddersfield Town debut on 31 August, 2013 in a 2-1 loss to Barnsley and he has been playing for the John Smith’s Stadium outfit ever since. He has been struggling with injuries during his professional career and on 31 January, 2015 he was airlifted to hospital with head trauma following a colliding with Joe Murphy, the Huddersfield Town shoot-stopper. Tommy Smith has yet to play for the England national team.
Highlighted Team (Reading):
Reading are a professional football club that play in the Championship. The club was formed in 1871 and Madejski Stadium has been the home of Reading since 1998. The Royals used to play their home games at Elm Park in the past (1896 - 1998). Reading made it to the FA Cup semi-finals on two occasions (1927, 2015), but they have yet to win the prestigious trophy. The likes of Robin Friday, Trevor Senior, Steve Death, Shaka Hislop, Phil Parkinson, Alf Messer, Jimmy Quinn, Michael Gilkes, Ronnie Blackman, Pavel Pogrebnyak and Martin Hicks are some of their more notable footballers. Aldershot Town were considered Reading’s fiercest rivals, but the Shots went out of business in 1992. Seeing that Aldershot rejoined the league in 2008 it remains to be seen if the rivalry is going to be re-established in near future. Swindon Town and Oxford United are considered Reading’s big rivals as well.
