Reading – Blackpool Preview

  • Reading are bidding to follow up Saturday’s narrow victory over Barnsley with another win on home turf as they take on Blackpool. Only Bournemouth (16) have claimed more than the 15 points the ‘Royals’ have registered across the last six Championship rounds (W5, L1) which has seen Veljko Paunović’s side propel themselves into the playoff picture as he seeks to become the first Reading manager since Brian McDermott in 2012 to bring Premier League football to the Madejski.
  • The omens are good for a home victory, with Reading registering all three points in their last six league H2H meetings with the ‘Tangerines’ on home turf. Paunović’s side are something of a second-half team though, with the decisive goal in five of their six Championship victories this season coming after the break, whilst at the Madejski, only 25% of their goals have been scored before half-time.
  • Blackpool were brought back down to earth with a bang at the weekend, as they faltered against a resurgent Nottingham Forest side that ended the Seasiders’ four-match unbeaten run (W3, D1). Any chances of avenging Saturday’s defeat, however, may hinge on preventing Reading getting on the scoresheet for the first time at home this season, but as Blackpool haven’t managed a clean sheet on the road this term, the prospects for that appear slim.
  • Their task of bouncing back couldn’t be coming at a worse place too, as Blackpool travel to Berkshire knowing that their last victory at Reading came back in April 1980, one of only two H2H away wins for the Lancashire club dating back to 1926 (D7, L12).
  • Players to watch: John Swift netted his eighth Championship goal of the season on Saturday, as he got back on the scoresheet after a four-game lull. Meanwhile, Jerry Yates has scored two goals in as many games for Blackpool.
  • Hot stat: Reading have scored two or more goals in six of the last seven home H2Hs.
