THE PREDICTION

Reading return to Championship action for the first time in just over two weeks with Coventry the visitors to the Madejski Stadium. The Royals still sit within the playoff places and a win here would see them not just cement their spot inside the top six, but possibly even make up ground on second placed Swansea depending on their result at Blackburn. Coventry have also not featured in over two weeks and as such both sides will be well rested heading into this one and a tight affair is expected. Having said that, the hosts have the superior quality within their squad going forward in particularly and with home advantage in their favour, Reading should narrowly edge victory.
