Reading take on the visitors Birmingham at “Madejski Stadium” in the round 26 of the English Championship. The game will be played on Tuesday, January 2nd.
Reading demonstrate a little bit unconvincing football in front of their supporters, having gained only three triumphs and five defeats in 12 home battles. It should be noted that the club’s offense show quite a solid play, having scored 14 goals already, however, the side’s defense leaves much to be desired, having conceded 15 goals so far which the horrible results are. “The Royals” look remarkably poor in this season and they must immediately change something in order to improve the situation. In their latest encounters conducted at “Madejski Stadium” Reading deserved 1:2 loss from Burton, 2:2 draw against Cardiff and 3:0 victory over Barnsley.

Birmingham demonstrate the worst results at away grounds within the Championship, being in a disastrous competitive form. The team earned three draws with not a single win in 12 matches played on the road. The club’s offense is in an awful shape now, having scored just five goals, the same is applicable to the defense which has conceded 22 goals so far. Birmingham recorded two draws against Sunderland and Sheffield Utd with the same 1:1 scoreline together with 0:1 defeat from Fulham.
It is quite a difficult task to choose a favourite in the forthcoming game. The most recent head-to-head between the rivals ended with 2:0 triumph of Reading. Taking into consideration the sides’ current form and previous statistics, a slight advantage can be given to the hosts.
Prediction for the match: Reading to win.
