THE PREDICTION

After a surprise 1-0 defeat to Derby, Bournemouth currently sit in sixth place having not won in their last three Championship matches. Pressure is starting to build on the Cherries considering the players they have at their disposal. However, the signing of Jack Wilshere could spark a revival for them as they travel to Reading. The hosts are unbeaten in their last five league games and their most recent home match saw them comfortably dispatch Huddersfield 3-0. With both sides within the top six with just two points separating the two teams in the table, a close contest is expected and it wouldn’t a surprise if this match finished in a stalemate with the points shared.
