A win is needed by Reading to stay away from the danger zone
Reading are having a worst season than they did last term at this stage. To illustrate, Reading’s 27 points from 22 matches are ten points less than they had last season. Moreover, Reading’s start for this season saw them grab three points from their opening six matches. That was followed by a spell of three back-to-back wins which put the Royals back on track.
Furthermore, coach Paunovic will have to regroup his team as they are just one spot above the relegation zone. And looking at their recent home form, the Royals are winless in their last four matches. With that form, Reading will find themselves in a very serious situation if they don’t bounce back quickly.
A draw here for Luton will be more than enough
Luton Town had very tough times in recent years. To illustrate, the Hatters were docked 30 points in season 2008-9 due to financial irregularities. In effect, Luton were relegated every season until they played conference football. However, starting from season 2013/14, Luton succeeded to win promotions until they reached the Championship three years ago.
Considering all these difficulties, Luton’s season is going very well as they are in 12th position with 29 points. Also, seven victories across 22 matches played are not so bad by their standards. Luton’s latest win was away to Blackpool 3-0. That came after a four-match winless spell in which Luton scored in one of those games. Indeed, boss Nathan Jones’ main aim is to keep playing in the Championship next season hence they’ll play for a point here.
Reading vs Luton Town Prediction
Despite the fact that Luton Town are the favorites here, we think a tough match is waiting for the Hatters in reading. Certainly, it will be hard to predict a winner for this match. Thus we prefer to check the goal market for a reasonable bet.
Looking at Reading’s last three matches, we can see that they all ended in two or fewer goals. While Luton’s last three of the four matches saw two or fewer goals as well. Moreover, according to the statistics, there is a 65 % chance that we will see under 2.5 goals in this match.
As a result, we will back under 2.5 goals with an odds of 1.77. Also for our second prediction, we will back both teams not to score, as was the case in both teams five of the last six h2hs.
