Bristol City vs Reading: Predictions
Bristol City comes into the game on the back of a humiliating 6-0 defeat to Watford on the weekend and will be hoping they can get back on track against Reading as Dean Holden’s future at the club comes further under question.
The two sides met back in November when Reading claimed the three points in a 3-1 victory over the Robins, however, Veljko Paunović’s side have struggled in recent weeks with no win in their last three league games.
Reading still sit in a promising position in their quest for promotion to the Premier League, but their recent form will concern their fans. The game on Tuesday night offers the visitors a great opportunity to get back to winning ways against a side with only one win in their last six league games.

Lucas Joao has impressed this season, scoring 16 goals in 23 league games. This tally has put Reading as the third top scorers in the league with 42 goals scored this season – only behind Brentford and Bournemouth.
