Reading come into this game off the back of an absolute humiliation in midweek. Will they bounce back with anything like a decent performance here? Find out with our Middlesbrough vs Reading match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Boro to win it

Where do we start with this prediction backing Middlesbrough to win. We could highlight the fact that Middlesbrough are unbeaten in seven games having won six of them but we don't want to do that. Why? Well, we'd rather focus on the pathetic excuse of a football team that is Reading. They've just been walloped 7-0 on their own patch by what had been an out of form Fulham side but even before then it hadn't been good; they're winless in five and have lost three.

Someone will fail to score

Our next tip for this match backs at least one side to blank. Middlesbrough have only seen both teams find the net in two of their last six games whilst Reading have seen at least one side fail to score in four of their past 10. That's not phenomenally convincing but the head to head record helps there. Just one of the past five head to head meetings have seen goals. We fully expect this match to follow that trend.

Middlesbrough vs Reading: It's predicted lineup time

Middlesbrough and Reading may well be separated by an entire division next season with Boro pushing for a top six finish as Reading struggle feebly to pull away from the relegation zone. Will this match play out to the form book or will the Royals show a reaction to their midweek battering?

Middlesbrough Predicted Lineup

Middlesbrough have been flying since Chris Wilder took over. In fact, they've lost just once since his appointment and find themselves right in the playoff shake up. Can they keep battling for the top six with a win here?

Predicted lineup – Lumley, Bamba, Dijksteel, Fry, McNair, Crooks, Jones, Peltier, Tavernier, Sporar, Hernandez

Reading Predicted Lineup

Reading's season has been toilet; that's not being too harsh either. Throw in their recent hammering and all of a sudden they look in serious danger of the drop. It would be a few turnaround of fortunes if they get anything from this game.

Predicted lineup – Southwood, Holmes, Dann, Terri, Bristol, Drinkwater, Laurent, Hoilett, Seift, Carroll, Rinomhota
