Our football match prediction:
Reading will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Huddersfield Town and Brighton when they welcome Wolverhampton at their Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Royals still sit in the play-offs berth and a win over Wolves in Saturday's football game would see them move one step closer to finishing the season in top six. It is well known that over the years Reading have turned their Madejski Stadium into a real fortress and seeing that they missed a couple of clear-cut chances to score in the 3-0 loss to Brighton at the weekend, we predict that Jaap Stam’s men will return to winning ways on Matchday 35. The Wolves have been slipping down the standings week by week; Paul Lambert’s men are on a five-game losing run in all competitions and they are unlikely to spoil Reading’s party at Madejski Stadium. The Wolves defeated the Royals in the reverse fixture, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.

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 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.
