Our prediction for this Championship match:
Luton Town will be aiming to seal their spot in the playoffs when they host Reading to their Kenilworth Road on the last day of the regular season. The Hatters were hammered by Fulham at Craven Cottage at the weekend, but they are surely capable of beating the Royals in front of home fans. Even though all Berry, Bree, Shea, Mpanzu, Osho, and Steer have been struggling with injuries of late, home win should be considered as Luton are eager to secure a top-six finish.
Reading, on the other hand, managed to secure the Championship survival. The Royals have nothing to play for in Saturday’s clash, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. All Swift, Ince, Azeez, Rinomhota, and Hein are sidelined with injuries for the visitors, who head into the match following back-to-back defeats to Hull City and WBA.
Highlighted Player (Allan Campbell):
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, on July 4, 1998, Allan Campbell is a Scottish footballer who plays for Motherwell. Campbell has been playing for the Steelmen since 2008 when he was a part of the Motherwell youth team.
The Scottish midfielder made his Premier League debut on October 29, 2016, in a 4-1 win over Ross County, and he scored his first goal in the Scottish top flight in a 4-2 victory over Inverness on April 15, 2017. Allan Campbell has 19 caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the Scotland senior team. His primary position is a defensive midfielder, but he is used as a central midfielder as well.
The Scottish footballer wears the number 6 shirt at Motherwell. In his youth days, Allan Campbell attended All Saints Roman Catholic Secondary School in Glasgow. He joined Motherwell football academy at the age of 10.
Highlighted Team (Reading):
Reading FC is 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.
