Reading, a bit like their opponent, has an unpleasant moment in the league and currently has seven straight games without a taste of victory. If this performance continues, the visiting team runs the risk of falling into the relegation zone. In this way, coach Jaap Stam has every interest of acting in a very offensive way, with an average block, looking for any error to score goals. Modou Barrow is the great highlight of Reading with 7 goals scored. Quinn, Smith, Moore, and Mendes all seem to have some physical problems.
