Bristol City – Reading Preview: Potential Lineups, Recent News, and Latest Form

Read all about these two teams and their current form, squad, and probable Bristol City vs Reading lineups right here:

Bristol City

After losing their last couple of games in Championship, Bristol City now lost three of their last five and have just one win in that period. So, they are clearly not in the best of forms at the moment, but they still remain safely tucked in the middle of the standings and with eight games remaining, they don't really have a chance of moving up or down much.

Meanwhile, seven players are currently on the team's injury list, including Matty James, Joe Williams, Rob Atkinson, and Tommy Conway.

Bristol City Predicted Lineup:

O'Leary – Tanner, Vyner, Pring, Dasilva – James, Weimann – Sykes, Scott, Bell – Wells

Reading

With four losses and one draw in the last five games, Reading has struggled a lot recently and they did drop down the standings a lot. So, now the team is in the lower half of Championship, but they are still nine points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone, so they seem to be safe at the moment.

When it comes to news, Reading has nine players injured at the moment, on top of which Mamadou Loum is also supsended.

Reading Predicted Lineup:

Lumley – Holmes, Dann, Sarr – Yiadom, Ince, Hendrick, Casadei, Guinness-Walker – Carroll, Joao

Player to Watch: Nahki Wells

We expect Bristol City to emerge victorious from this game, so our player to watch comes from their side and it is Nahki Wells, the experienced striker from Bermuda.

This season in Championship Wells scored eleven goals and added four assists, so he has clearly been one of the team's most consistent performers and that's a good reason for Reading to keep a close eye on him.
