Both teams will be entering Select Car Leasing Stadium on Tuesday, 10 October. The Robins have got the back of consecutive defeats against Bradford City and Notts County in League Two.

Match result prediction: Reading to win at second half

Reading have registered three victories in their last five fixtures at Select Car Leasing Stadium. Reading has also defeated Swindon in three of their previous five home H2Hs. However, Reading has not started their recent games strongly as they were goalless in the previous two home matches before the break.

Swindon have rattled the net just three times in their last four away fixtures in League Tow. Defensively, the Robins leaked six goals in the last three of those matches.  But Reading have rattled the net seven times in their last five fixtures at Select Car Leasing Stadium. Moreover, three of the recent four H2H meetings between these two teams have gone Over 2.5 Goals. Hence, we predict the teams to share a total of at least three goals in this game.

Given these numbers, we predict a 2-1 margin in favour of Reading in this encounter.
