Match preview

Two high-flying sides in search of a bounce-back result are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday, October 18th.

The matchup in question will see Swansea City play host to Reading.

First, let’s take a look at the recent endeavours of the former. Prior to this past weekend, Swansea represented one of the English 2nd tier’s most in form sides.

This came owing to a stretch of four wins on the trot, and five from six, guiding the Swans into the thick of the playoff battle.

To say that Russell Martin’s troops were brought firmly back down to earth on Saturday, though, would be putting it lightly.

Swansea made the trip to Turf Moor last time out, in the knowledge that another victory would have seen them leapfrog Burnley in the table.

Instead, though, a remarkable 4-0 result means that Vincent Kompany’s men are now leading the way in the Championship, with their latest victims stuck in 8th.

Tuesday’s hosts, though, are not the only ones set to take to the Liberty Stadium pitch with sights set on a bounce-back result.

Reading will do the same, on the back of a hugely disappointing result of their own in Gameweek 14.

After seeing a fine spell of form brought to a screeching halt by means of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of QPR, the Royals welcomed relegation-battling West Bromwich Albion to the Madejski on Saturday.

Paul Ince’s men, though, were ultimately put to the sword once more, owing to goals on the part of Baggies pair Matt Phillips and Taylor Gardner-Hickman.

Reading, in turn, will head into midweek sitting just a point clear of their upcoming hosts, in 6th, whilst bizarrely in possession of the joint-2nd worst goal difference in the Championship.

But we at 101 are nevertheless backing the Royals, when all is said and done, to return from Wales with a share of the spoils to their name.
