Our football match prediction:
Rotherham United are running down a blind alley at the moment. The Millers have collected six points from possible 39 in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign and they are on a six-game losing run in the league ahead of Saturday’s football match against Reading. Rotherham have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at the Royals, but they do not seem to be competitive at this level. Reading were more than unfortunate not to grab something from Tuesday’s match against Aston Villa as Jordan Ayew scored a late winner for the Villans from the penalty spot. The Millers head into the match with the lack of confidence and, taking everything into account, we predict that the Royals are going to emerge triumphant in the AESSEAL New York Stadium clash. In their last meeting in the Championship Reading recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Rotherham United.
Highlighted Player (Danny Ward):
Daniel Danny Ward is a goalkeeper who was born on 22 June, 1993 in Wrexham, Wales. The 191-cm-tall shoot-stopper is a product of Wrexham Academy, but he did not make his senior debut for the club. After spending the 2010/2011 season at Tamworth, Danny Ward returned to Wrexham and on 30 January, 2012 he joined Liverpool for a fee of £100,000. He made just two league appearances for the Anfield outfit and in 2015 he signed a loan deal with Morecambe. On 23 June he signed a new five-year deal with Liverpool, but he was soon sent on loan to Aberdeen. He played 21 games for the Scottish outfit and on 11 July, 2016 he signed a season-long deal with Championship team Huddersfield Town. Danny Ward has 4 caps for Wales U21 team and he made his senior debut for the Dragons in a friendly against Northern Ireland on 24 March, 2016. Ward represented his homeland at the 2016 European Championship finals in France as he started the game against Slovakia.
Highlighted Team (Reading):
Reading are 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.
