Reading vs Sheffield Wednesday predictions- Sheffield Wednesday and particularly Reading have plenty of work to do if they are to repeat last season’s top six finish. Of the two, it’s certainly the Owls that look more capable of doing that and they might just have the edge here, with Reading not enjoying a good season at all in front of their own fans.
They’ve taken just 1 point per home game on average, which is a massive reduction on last season, when the Madejski was a real fortress for them. Only Burton and Sunderland have picked up fewer home Championship points this term than the Royals and that,you imagine ,will be giving Jaap Stam plenty of sleepless nights .
Reading vs Sheffield Wednesday predictions
Injuries have played their part in Reading’s struggles and they’ve struggled for goals as a result, with just 1 goal scored on average at home. Meanwhile they are yet to really cure their problems at the other end that were evident at times even last season, although mostly away from home. This time around they are yet to keep a single home clean sheet and that will certainly encourage the visitors here.
Sheffield Wednesday have found a bit of form at last and are unbeaten in 5 games heading into this one. They showed plenty of fighting spirit to come from behind twice and grab a late draw at Ipswich in midweek so they will head into this one with a bit of momentum and that point at Portman Road would have probably felt more like a win. They also won at Villa Park in their previous away game so although they don’t have a great overall away record this term, there’s reason to think they may now have turned a bit of a corner and it’s important they build on that here.
One of their scorers in East Anglia was Gary Hooper who moved onto an impressive 8 league goals, more than he managed in all of last season. With a few injury problems, Hooper has had more chance to play regularly and has cemented himself as one of the first names on the teamsheet now and there looks to be value in backing Hooper to score anytime here.
It’s just 3 wins from 13 matches for Reading and with the Owls trying to round off an unbeaten November, going for Sheffield Wednesday Draw No Bet looks like the most appealing bet here, particularly given how the Royals have struggled at home this term.
