Preston vs Reading: Top Free Betting Tips

Getting desperate for a win, Reading is scheduled to visit Deepdale Stadium for the next fixture against Preston North End on Monday, 10 April. The Lilywhites have two consecutive defeats before this game and Reading enters the field after a seven-match winless streak.

Match Result Prediction: Preston to Win

Preston has won four of the last five league affairs and lost the remaining one against Middlesbrough. The Lilywhites have also gone winless in the previous five games at Deepdale Stadium, winning three of them. But Reading is yet to win an away game in 2023 and lost seven of the previous eight road fixtures. The Royals have also been defeated in the home meeting against Preston this season. Given the current statistics, we predict the Lilywhites again get three points in this meeting.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: No

Preston North End have claimed two clean sheets in the previous three matches in EFL Championship. On the other hand, Reading have failed to find the back of the net in five of the recent seven league matches away from Car Leasing Stadium. On the other hand, the Lilywhites have been on the scoring side in four of the last five matches. The Royals have conceded goals in all games in the same duration. Considering Preston’s form, we predict them to be the only side to score in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Preston

Preston scored nine goals in the last five league affairs and hit the back of the net at least twice in four of them. The Lilywhites also scored twice in the last meeting against Reading this season. On the other hand, the Royals have conceded eight goals in the previous three games away from Select Car Leasing Stadium, leaking more than once in two of them. Hence, we believe to see the Lilywhites taking a 2-0 lead at the end of the ninety minutes in this game.

Preston vs Reading: Form, Recent Games, and News

Preston Preview

Thomas Cannon’s early brace in the second half of the last game against Queens Park Rangers gave the Lilywhites a 0-2 victory. Getting on a winning run, Preston North End have secured eighth position on the points table after 40 league matches. The unavailability of Ched Evans and three other players due to injuries has left Preston with less-than-ideal preparation for this game.

Reading Preview

The Royals witnessed a third consecutive league draw in the last game against Birmingham City with a 1-1 scoreline. A long winless sequence has sent the Buiscitmen to the drop zone, standing in the twenty-second position with only 41 points in rounds. Reading’s plan for this game will also be disrupted by the absence of five players listed under injury.
