Reading vs Coventry City Betting Tips

A decent contest can be expected at the Madjeski Stadium on Tuesday as Reading looks to bounce back from last week´s cup exit at Luton.

Now at the half-way stage of the season, Reading has performed well under the stewardship of Serbian coach Veljko Paunovic and now have a 4 point cushion from 7th placed Middlesbrough.

While a top 6 spot would be a fine achievement for a side that finished 14th last season, Reading are only 6 points adrift of an automatic promotion position, and hold a game in hand on teams above them, including 2nd placed Swansea.

Recent form suggests that reading might not have the quality to achieve that lofty ambition with the hosts losing 4 of their last 7 at the Madjeski. 4 of their last 5 at home also saw BTTS.

Visitors Coventry makes the trip south having struggled for goals in recent weeks, drawing a blank in 4 successive league outings before a fine 2:1 win at Millwall ended that barren run...

Coventry also suffered an FA Cup exit last weekend but played well before that 4 games run without a goal, having gone 7 unbeaten in the Championship.

On the road, Coventry has seen BTTS in 6 of their last 8 league matches, and with Reading only managing 1 clean sheet in their last 7 at home, does have a chance again here. Reading actually conceded 2 goals or more in 4 of those 7 matches.

Coventry edged a thrilling 3:2 encounter when these sides met in October, and while we might not get quite as many goals, BTTS does appeal at 1.95 odds while Reading, despite their inconsistent home form, could have the tools to record their 8th home win of the season.

Reading vs Coventry City Correct Score Prediction
