Fleetwood vs Reading: Top free betting tips
Fleetwood will face Reading in midweek League One action on Tuesday night at Highbury Stadium. Fleetwood come into the match with renewed hope of survival after showing some life in recent weeks while Reading are looking to create breathing space between themselves and the bottom four. Our Fleetwood vs Reading prediction is for a draw in a match between two teams who are fighting for their lives.
Match result prediction: Draw
Reading have been in impressive form lately and are unbeaten in their last five matches in League One. This has helped them to steer three points clear of the drop zone but they are set to face a team on Tuesday with renewed hope in front of their home crowd. Reading don't usually travel well and only Carlisle have a worse record than them on the road this season. As a result, Fleetwood will fancy their chances of picking up at least a point.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Fleetwood have the worst defensive record in League One which should be music to the ears of Reading who have scored 40 goals in 31 League One matches this season. In their last 22 matches, Reading have scored at least one goal on 21 occasions which means we should expect them to get at least one here against a leaky defence. Fleetwood, meanwhile, have scored at least once in eight of their last ten matches so they aren't exactly goal-shy, either.
Correct score prediction: Fleetwood 1-1 Reading
Earlier in the season, Fleetwood enjoyed a rare away win when they beat Reading 2-1 in what was the first-ever meeting between the two clubs. That win and Reading's away form this season should give them confidence of picking up another positive result on Tuesday.
How far will Reading fans travel to Fleetwood?
The journey from Reading to Fleetwood is one of the longest in League One with the travelling Royals facing a 250-mile up north on a Tuesday night. By car or coach, the journey will take over four hours and close to five depending on traffic. Meanwhile, via public transport the journey will take close to six hours – it involves getting a train from Reading to Preston via Birmingham before then getting on a local bus from Preston Railway Station to the ground.
