Reading vs Peterborough Lineups & Team News

Reading

The Royals were certainly busy in the summer of 2023. The team booked five friendlies, but they certainly didn’t go as planned, as coach Ruben Selles’ boys didn’t win a single one of them. In fact, Reading lost all five games! If that doesn’t give our Reading vs Peterborough predictions the edge, nothing does. The Royals' display was so poor, that the team managed to score in only one of those five events.

Predicted lineup – Boyce-Clark (GK), Holmes, Sarr, Yiadom, Mbengue, McIntyre, Hendrick, Azeez, Casadei, Hoilett & Long

Peterborough

Unlike their opponents, the Posh managed to get a few good jabs in during pre-season. Sure, losing 1-0 to Peterborough Sports was a humiliating result, but Clarke-Harris and his compadres swiftly made up to their fans with a brilliant 3-2 victory over Birmingham.

Predicted lineup – Norris (GK), Burrows, Edward, Kent, Ward, Kyprianou, Norburn, Taylor, Mason-Clark, Poku & Clarke-Harris

Player to Watch: Jonson Clarke-Harris

Who else did you expect to see here? Jonson Clarke-Harris deserves to be under the spotlight in this Reading vs Peterborough prediction, as he became the top scorer in the 2022/23 League One season.

The 29-year-old Jamaican bagged an incredible 26 goals last campaign, but knowing his unyielding character, we’re sure that Peterborough’s top finisher would like to top this display with another masterclass.
