Reading – Bournemouth Preview

  • Reading have followed up back-to-back wins with back-to-back defeats, and with the threat of a points deduction for financial reasons still hanging over their heads, they know every point right now is especially important. Three points against the form guide here could take them as high as fifth in the table, which is all the motivation they should require.
  • Last season saw Reading record home victories against three of the six teams finishing above them in the standings, including a 3-1 win vs Bournemouth back in January. Many fans expect a winner either way yet again, as only Reading and two others have drawn one league match this season. That is the joint-lowest tally in the entire EFL.
  • Bournemouth are the only unbeaten EFL team (W10, D4), whilst their accumulated 34 points is the best start to a Championship season since Sheffield United’s 36 in 2005/06 (2nd – promoted). After conceding only once in five games, and enjoying a run of four straight wins, the ‘Cherries’ will expect another fruitful evening atop the Championship cake.
  • That said, Reading were the opposition the last time Bournemouth conceded over 2.5 goals in a regular season away encounter. The fact they’ve only conceded one away league goal this season across seven games (W5, D2) is further evidence of their impressive start, but away 0-0 draws to strugglers Hull and Peterborough show they can still have an off-day.
  • Players to watch: Reading’s John Swift is already only one goal short of his best goalscoring season, and has five goals across their last five home matches. Bournemouth’s Dominic Solanke is in even better form, having netted seven in nine.
  • Hot stat: Bournemouth have conceded the opening goal in league action only once this season.
