Derby County require a late goal in order to get them past Reading.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
These are two teams that have been able to get plenty of attacking momentum going their way – even from the first kickoff.

Since both teams are more than capable of scoring in this match, our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

Tom Lawrence had an impressive game against Reading and he managed an incredible five shots at goal. Even though he ended up scoring with his only shot on target, Lawrence will be able to gain a lot of confidence. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Lawrence.
