Match preview

A Reading outfit in the midst of a free-fall are set to act as hosts on Saturday, October 22nd, in a Championship fixture at the Madejski Stadium.

The outfit with sights set on adding ever further to the recent woes of the Royals? Bristol City.

Reading, until just a couple of weeks ago, had positioned themselves in the thick of the fight for promotion to the Premier League.

This came owing to a stellar stretch of six wins from eight, spanning either side of the international break.

Such head-turning form on the part of Paul Ince’s troops, however, has since fallen firmly off a cliff.

All told, Reading are now winless in four, having scrapped to just a solitary point from an available 12 over the course of the last fortnight.

The latest defeat suffered by Saturday’s hosts came in midweek, when, after racing out to a 2-0 advantage at the Liberty Stadium, Ince and co. collapsed once more to allow fellow playoff hopefuls Swansea City to take all three points.

The Royals, as a result, have slipped to a lowly 10th in the Championship standings.

And such struggles could well see Reading, come the close of the Championship gameweek, leapfrogged in the table by their upcoming opponents.

Bristol City have enjoyed an altogether better go of things of late, notching wins in two of their last three.

Either side of a defeat at the hands of a steadily climbing Millwall outfit, the Robins secured all three points at the expense of Preston North End and, last time out, West Bromwich Albion.

First-half goals on the part of Joe Williams and Nahki Wells proved enough to clinch a 2-0 triumph at the Hawthorns.

Attacker Wells, for his part, has now climbed to a spot in joint-2nd in the Championship top scorer standings.

And his efforts could well prove vital once more this weekend, as Bristol go in search of a 3rd win in four.

We at 101, though, are backing the spoils to ultimately be shared upon the full-time whistle bringing proceedings to a close at the Madejski on Saturday afternoon.
