Reading welcome the visitors Nottingham Forrest in the English Championship – Round 27. The match will be held on Saturday, January 12th, at the Madejski Stadium (Reading).
Reading continue to drop points in each fixture. The team celebrated their last win yet in the beginning of November; since that, they’ve attained only 5 points of 30 possible. That said, over that period, the ‘Royals’ failed to win even their direct rivals for survival – Ipswich Town and Rotherham United, and in their trip to Millwall, they lost. On their turf, the team are winless in 5 consecutive rounds. Their last home fixture saw their 1:4 hammering at the hands of Swansea City.

The visiting Nottingham Forrest conceded only 5 times in this Championship. Yet on their travels, they lost in only 2 of 13 encounters. The team’s performance has significantly improved, and in this campaign, their defense feature less failures than before. The Forrest’s tally of missed goals is 29, however, the lion’s part of these goals was scored by the league toppers. The ‘Reds’’ attack are totally fine. The team shipped 39 goals, which is 6th record in the table – the guests did not find the net in only 6 games of 26.
Surely, Nottingham were not blistering in their last fixtures, but Reading’s performance is bleak. The ‘Royals’’ defense are horrible – they allowed 41 goals in 26 rounds. Not surprisingly, the team count only 3 matches wherein they kept a clean sheet. Their attack are same bad – in the previous 10 official encounters, the hosts made only 4 goals. Nottingham also struggled in conversion, but the goals were pouring in their last clash against Leeds United – the guests scored 4 times. Overall, the ‘Reds’ have many times tortured opponents’ defense in this campaign – they shipped 3 goals to Norwich away and 5 goals to Aston Villa. Nottingham’s defensive line failed only in matches versus the league’s highflyers, managing to oppose other teams’ attacks. In our view, the Forrest will succeed to withstand Reading in their trip as well.
Prediction for the match: Nottingham Forrest to win with a 0.0 handicap.
