Peterborough United will welcome Reading to Weston Homes Stadium for a matchday 24 fixture in England Championship. The last meeting on 14th September 2021 ended in a Reading 3-1 win. Both sides have met seven times in the most recent seasons. Peterborough United has won 3 matches, and Reading triumphed in 4. Recent outings average 5.00 goals, while both teams score 71% of the time.
Peterborough United’s last game in the England Championship against Preston North End at home ended in a 0-1 loss. The final result is not a surprise. The Posh played less with the ball and therefore had less clear cut chances.
Reading’s recent game against Coventry City ended in a home 2-3 loss. The Royals’s strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances. Reading had good chances in both halves and scored in the 23rd and 55th minute.
Since the start of the season, Peterborough United is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 14 games on home soil. Although Peterborough United is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 21% home clean sheets.
Reading has picked up 0 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Reading wins 0.86 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Reading kept a clean sheet in just 7% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Reading.
