Reading to Win

While Reading is without a win in the last six games, Rotherham didn't do that much better since they only have one win in that same period. The two teams are close to each other in standings, but Reading is five points ahead of Rotherham right now.

So, this will likely be a very close duel between two teams of similar quality. However, with Reading hosting the match, we can see them ending their winless streak and beating Rotherham.

Reading – Rotherham Preview: Team News, Latest Form, and Probable Lineups

This can be a very close and exciting game, so let's take a better look at both teams before they meet on Tuesday, which includes checking our predicted Reading vs Rotherham lineups.

Reading

This has been another turbulent season for Reading in Championship as the team has been up and down, but once again, it seems that they've settled for down. Reading is without a win in the last six games and they are sitting in the lower half of the standings, although they are still relatively safe from relegation since they are nine points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Reading has a few players on their injury list right now, including Dejan Tetek, Sam Hutchinson, Ovie Ejaria, and Tom Holmes, while Mamadou Loum is suspended at the moment.

Reading Predicted Lineup:

Lumley – Yiadom, Sarr, Mbengue – Hoilett, Ince, McIntyre, Hendrick, Baba – Long, Carroll

Rotherham

While they are without a loss in the last four games in Championship, Rotherham only has one win in those games, along with three draws. Still, that is a positive sign for the team that's currently in the fight for survival as they are sitting four points clear of the relegation zone at the moment.

When it comes to team news, Sean Morrison, Ben Wiles, and Georgie Kelly are out with injuries at the moment.

Rotherham Predicted Lineup:

Johansson – Peltier, Hall, Humphreys, Bramall – Odoffin, Coventry, Rathbone – Ogbene, Hugill, Fosu

Championship Standings

Player to Watch: Tom Ince

While there are some interesting players who could stand out in both of these teams, since we expect Reading to win, our choice for player to watch is Tom Ince as he has been very consistent this season.

The experienced English midfielder has seven goals and four assists in Championship so far, and while he did play in 30 games, that is still one of the best tally of all Reading players and Rotherham has to take him seriously.
