Reading vs Stoke City prediction, preview, team news and more

Reading hosts Stoke City at Select Car Leasing Stadium in the EFL Championship on Tuesday, with the two having contrasting seasons so far.

Reading are currently 21st in the league, five points above the relegation zone. Paul Ince’s side are unbeaten in their last three games but have won just one of their last six games. They hope to continue their momentum by earning a win against Stoke on Tuesday.

Stoke City, meanwhile, are currently 13th in the table, ten points adrift of the top six. Michael O’Neill’s side have been in decent form lately, having lost just one of their last five games. They will be looking to move up the table with a win against Reading on Tuesday.

“That’s what the fans want, they want the players to fight.” They haven’t had that fight all season and now suddenly they’re fighting every game and they’ve put themselves in a great position to stay in this league but we’ve got a long way to go.”

Both teams will want to win the game for different reasons and that should make for an interesting matchup.
