Our football match prediction:
Reading will be aiming to build on a 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday when they host Leeds United at their Madejski Stadium. The Royals have been pretty unpredictable in the 2016/2017 Championship season, but they sit in the play-offs berth and nothing else matters. Reading aim to cement their spot in top six, but Saturday’s football match against Leeds United will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Yann Kermorgant found the net in the 2-0 victory over Wednesday and he will be the man to watch in the home team. The Whites, on the other hand, did remarkably well to beat star-studded Brighton at their Elland Road on Matchday 38, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Saturday’s clash against Reading. Both teams are likely to adopt a cautious approach this time out and we predict that they will share the spoils at Madejski Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Obita):
Jordan Obita is a left-back who plays for Reading in the Championship. Obita is capable of playing as a winger as well and he is a left-footed player. He was born in Oxford and, as expected, he had trials with his home-town club, but he eventually signed a deal with Reading. He joined the Reading youth academy at age of 8 and he made his senior debut for the Royals on 11 August, 2010. He came from the bench in the League Cup clash against Torquay United and he made his first start against Charlton Athletic in the same competition in the 2011/2012 season. Obita spent several years on loan at Barnet, Gillingham, Portsmouth and Oldham Athletic, but he is still a Reading player. He has a contract with the Madejski Stadium outfit until 30 June. 2018. Jordan Obita has two caps for England U20 and he played for the U18 an U19 teams in the past as well. The Reading left-back was named the Player of the Season for the 2013/2014 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Leeds United):
Leeds United are one of the clubs that won the FA Cup. The Whites outplayed Arsenal in the final of the prestigious competition back in 1972, but they clinched the League Cup trophy as well. Leeds United faced the Gunners in the 1967/1968 League Cup final and it has to be noted that Terry Cooper scored the winner for the Whites. Leeds play their home games at Elland Road and the capacity of the stadium is 37,914. The club was founded in 1919 and they have won three First Division (Premier League) trophies ever since (1968/1969, 1973/1974, 1991/1992). Leeds United made it to the Champions League final in 1975, but they were beaten by Bayern Munich in the title clash. The Whites were impressive under David O’Leary. The likes of Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka and Ian Harte were part of the Elland Road outfit back then and they did well to reach the semis of the Champions League in 2001.
