Reading welcoming QPR in first match of 19th round of English Championship. Reading currently occupies solid 9th position at the table and they seems out of the track since in last 7 matches they celebrated only once against Bolton and home, while suffered three defeats and got three draws. They had good start of this season and in first 12 rounds suffered only two defeats and now must try to get back on the track and end that series of bad results. Reading is playing good offensive football, they scored 26 goals in previous 18 rounds, now must try to win and continue with good result at home, so far they suffered only two defeats in front of their fans, one in league and second in 1/16 finals of Capital One Cup against Everton. They showed improving of their form in comparison to a previous season when they ended at 19th position, only three places above relegation zone and now must give their best and try to win all three points here with strong support of their fans. Reading has positive record in duel against QPR, in last five matches they celebrated two times and got three draws.
QPR on the other hand after very poor previous season when they were relegated from Premier league are still out of the track, they are currently at 12th position at the table and it seems that they won't be able to find their ticket for return into English top league. In previous 18 rounds QPR celebrated six times, got five draws and suffered seven defeats, they are now coming here after narrow victory over Leeds at home while before that suffered three defeats and got one draw. QPR is having only five points less than 6th position, which would lead them into play offs for promotion, and if they don't improve their performances, especially defense for sure won't be able to fight for promotion. QPR failed to win in last six matches in front of their fans and now must play on very high level here to achieve positive outcome and end series of bad results at home.
This will for sure be interesting match, Reading must go for a victory and try to earn all three points in front of their fans, while QPR after disaster in previous campaign still didn't managed to find their form and it will be very hard to achieve positive result here, I believe that Reading is closer to a victory.
