Hornets to take the sting out of Reading's good start

If you look at the general form of these two sides then you would perhaps be lead down the path of a Reading win with the Royals having won four of their last five games compared to Watford who have one win in their past five games. Despite that form, we are backing Watford to win. With Watford being at home that changes things; Watford have won three of their last five home games whilst Reading have lost three of their last five games on the road. They've also lost their last two games at Vicarage road.

BTTS – No

The next prediction we have for you is that both teams will not score. Watford's recent form pours a small amount of doubt on this tip with each of their last three games seeing both teams score but their two games prior to that saw at least one side blanking. Now we're into the stats that really support our ‘no' tip; Reading have seen both teams score in just one of their past five games. Then you've got the head to head record to consider; four of the last five clashes – including each of the last three – have featured a ‘nil' in the final score.

A top six clash

Watford and Reading have both made solid starts to this Championship campaign with both sides sitting in the playoff places. It's obviously very early days in the campaign but beating a fellow top six rival would send a statement to the league and positive vibes through their fanbase. Who though will get the win?

Watford have made a really solid start to the new season despite having a summer window loaded with vultures circling their talents. The other thing they've had to deal with is a growing injury list. Amongst others, Tom Cleverley and Tom Dele-Bashiru will both be missing for this match.

Watford Predicted lineup – Bachmann, Hause, Kabasele, Cathcart, Sema, Kamara, Kayembe, Asprilla, Choudhury, Sema, Bayo, Joao Pedro

Paul Ince has made a real impact since coming into Reading at the back end of last season and the Royals are sitting pretty in third at the moment. If they can get a result here people will really take them seriously – and they'll have done it all despite a few injuries – including to big players such as Liam Moore and Femi Azeez.

Reading Predicted lineup – Lumley, Holmes, Hutchinson, McIntyre, Yiadom, Ince, Hendrick, Fornah, Hoilett, Long, Joao
