Reading vs Fleetwood preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Reading vs Fleetwood lineups.


Reading’s struggles reached a new low on Saturday when they lost the London derby vs Charlton 0-4. The Royals actually played well for large periods but defensively way too many bad errors were committed and this proved costly. 

The pressure mounted fast after a single point was earned from the last five games. 

The fact that there are lots of other problems off the field to distract the players is hardly helpful. Reading are up for sale right now. They already had points deducted twice this season. The players say that they are still waiting for their August wages. 

To add further issues to the mix Reading continue to be missing 4 important players due to injuries and there are rumours that a group of 6-7 first-team players consider refusing to play until they get paid. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Button (GK), Bindon, Dean, Abbey, Guiness-Walker, Elliott, Wing, Savage, Knibbs, Azeez & Kelvin 


Fleetwood felt much better after winning back-to-back games on the road. However, the mood dampened again with the Cod Army losing back-to-back matches at home in the last 2 rounds. 

On Saturday a close contest vs Lincoln brought a 0-1 loss. Fleetwood had chances and should have earned at least a draw but it wasn’t to be. 

On all their struggles Fleetwood continues to play much better on the road. Only 1 of their last 5 league defeats had been suffered away from home. Also, 3 of the 4 positive results this season (W1 D2) were registered on the road. 

Centre-back Nsiala misses this game suspended. However, this is not a big issue with the star centre-back Sarpong-Wiredu finally fully fit and ready to start for the first time since round 2. 

Heneghan is also back after serving his ban, while Omochere pushes for a recall up front after being benched at the weekend. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Lynch (GK), Lawal, Heneghan, Sarpong-Wiredu, Johnson, Quitirna, Vela, Broom, Earl, Omochere & Marriott

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.
