Bournemouth will be looking to carry on their winning ways on the back of a 2-0 home defeat of Derby at the weekend. Reading will be looking to bounce back from a poor performance that saw them lose 4-0 at Nottingham Forest.

The Cherries are going well with just one defeat from their previous seven Championship fixtures. Their opponents are struggling for form and have tasted defeat in each of their last three.

Scott Parker has lead his side up to second in the table and with two games in hand and 12 points gap will not have given up on catching Fulham. Paul Ince will be happy to just keep his side up but that will not be easy as they 21st and one place from the dropzone.

Both teams to score is a feature of Bournemouth games and has happened in five of their last six league matches. A leaking of goals is a huge concern for the Royals who have kept just one in their last 25.

At home, the Cherries have taken ten points from their last four games and tend to perfom well. On the road, the Berkshire outfit have won just one of their last nine in all competitions which includes a loss at Kidderminster in the FA Cup.

Bournemouth vs Reading: Match Stats

Backing the hosts to win the fixture is the obvious play given the gulf in class between the two sides. To enhance the price take the hosts and both teams to score as five of their last six have seen goals at both ends of the pitch.

Jamal Lowe tends to be used by Scott Parker as a late attacking option off the bench with his pace causing problems for tired legs. He has four in his last five and a couple in the last five minutes so take him to score the last goal here.
