Reading Win

Stevenage have been able to open the new season with back-to-back wins but it is very difficult to be on the right side of the same form when it comes to going up against a Championship team. Reading are yet to hit good form but there are signs of the team being once again very hard to beat at home.

Both teams to score – no

Reading and Stevenage have not kept any clean sheets in the opening rounds of the action. The status is likely to be amplified in this game but both teams might end up being a little cautious at the back owing to their recent form. Reading also have excellent quality compared to Stevenage to pick up a clean sheet.
