Our prediction for this Championship match:
After sharing the spoils with Stoke City at the weekend, Reading will be looking to return to winning ways in the Championship when they take on Millwall at their Madejski Stadium. The Royals aim to keep their promotion hopes alive, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground. Portugal international Joao is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts, while Araruna, Moore, and Puscas remain in the recovery room.
The Lions, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 4-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday. The capital club regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Reading. A close encounter is on the cards at Madejski Stadium, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. The likes of Mahoney, Mitchell, and Wallace are all likely to miss the game with injuries.
