Our preview predicts Sheffield to return to winning ways.

Reading have regularly been in among the goals when it comes to the home matches but they have equally conceded in front of their supporters. Thus, we are anticipating an open-sided encounter which was the case in the meetings last term where more than two goals were witnessed. Our total goals prediction is to go for more than 2.5 goals.

Billy Sharp has been Sheffield’s leading scorer this term with 10 league goals but none of those have resulted from his previous five appearances.

The veteran has also fared impressively with Reading with four goals from his previous nine meetings. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Billy Sharp.
