Our prediction for this Championship match:
Reading will be aiming to make amends for a 2-1 loss to QPR when they take on WBA in the Championship round 15. The Royals continue with their old habit of producing much better displays at home than on the travels, with the team eyeing their sixth triumph at Select Car Leasing Stadium. Defender Sam Hutchinson has joined the likes of Abdul-Rahman Baba, Naby Sarr, Liam Moore, Femi Azeez, and Scott Dann in the treatment room, while Shane Long should recover in time to face the Baggies.
West Brom, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Luton Town at the weekend, with the team remaining in the relegation zone. The visitors are desperate to get back on course, and seeing that they will go for a win in Saturday’s showdown as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Defender Semi Ajayi and forward Daryl Dike continue to miss out with injuries for the away side.
