Reading might be having a terrible season but there is no doubting that they should be winning this game. Football, and certainly the FA Cup, don't always work like that though. Could Kidderminster spring a surprise? Find out with our Kidderminster vs Reading match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Kidderminster to avoid a knockout
This is a big call on our part but we're backing Kidderminster to get a result of some form – although we're not sure whether that will be a win or a draw. That is what the double chance is for! Reading's form has been terrible, their form is shoddy with just two wins from their last 10 and the mood around the camp is poor. Then you have Kidderminster who have lost just one of their past 10 games and, owing to games in hand, could go top of the National League North. The fact they're also at home here means it ticks everybody that goes along with a giant killing!
Both teams will bag
We've obviously made the bold call to back Kidderminster to take a positive result from this game but we think Reading will have their moments too; they do have quality in their ranks, of course. That's why we are backing both teams to score. Kidderminster have seen goals at both ends in each of their last three and in four of their past five. Reading meanwhile have seen three of their last four games end with both teams scoring.
