Match preview

Two sides locked on points in the Championship table are set to go head to head at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday, December 10th.

The matchup in question will see struggling Reading play host to a Coventry City outfit fast establishing themselves as one of the English 2nd tier’s standout sides.

First, let’s take a look at the most recent efforts of the former.

Reading, to their credit, did emerge triumphant from their final outing prior to last month’s World Cup break.

This came as a last-minute Ryan Goodman own goal proved enough to guide the Royals to a thoroughly hard-fought 2-1 victory over Hull City.

This result, though, in truth, did little more than paper over the cracks of what has proven a shocking stretch of form on the part of Paul Ince’s troops.

After previously establishing themselves in the thick of the promotion playoff battle, Reading have since fallen off the pace in England’s 2nd tier in alarming fashion.

All told, prior to their trip to the MKM Stadium, the Royals had secured just a solitary three-point haul from nine attempts.

Such woes leave Ince and co. sitting in the depths of the bottom half of the table, just shy of the season’s halfway point.

Safe to say, then, that a 2nd win on the spin will no doubt sit atop the wishlist of all associated with Reading this weekend.

Such a result, though, is likely to prove an altogether difficult one to come by.

This comes with upcoming opponents Coventry having long embarked on a remarkable surge up the Championship table.

The Sky Blues, not long ago, found themselves glued to the foot of England’s 2nd tier, looking in real trouble on the back of an altogether shaky opening to the term.

Since mid-October, though, Mark Robins’ men have rattled off a head-turning seven wins from nine, including four on the trot.

The most recent of these, prior to the international break, came at the expense of QPR, as a Vitkor Gyokeres double guided Coventry to the right side of a 2-0 final scoreline.

Keep an eye on hitman Gyokeres this weekend, too, as the Swede goes in search of a fifth goal in his last four appearances.

All told, such collective efforts mean that Coventry now sit just inside the top half of the Championship table. Not only that, but victories in each of their games in hand could guide the Sky Blues to the dizzying heights of the playoff promotion spots.

In turn, we at 101 are backing Mark Robins and co, when all is said and done on Saturday afternoon, to get the better of hosts Reading at the Madejski Stadium.
