Reading FC vs West Bromwich Albion FC – First Goalscorer odds
Yakou Meite has been in excellent form over the last few weeks. The striker has come up with five goals in as many appearances to take his season’s tally to 12 goals.

Yakou Meite has also come up with the opening goal for Reading in the last three games. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Yakou Meite.
