Reading vs Luton Town Match Analysis and Prediction

Reading will be looking to put an end to their six-match winless run across all competitions when they host Luton Town at the Madejski Stadium in an important Championship fixture on Wednesday night with kickoff at 23:00.

Reading have been struggling this season with the club collecting 22 points from their 25 matches and currently sit just a place and four points outside the relegation zone.

Their struggles continued last weekend as they fell to a 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough at away on Saturday. The defeat marked their seventh winless match across all competitions while marking their third defeat on the row including back-to-back defeats in the Championship, consisting of their weekend defeat and the 7-0 humbling loss to Fulham.

With campaign now counting a few games inside the last half of the season Veljko Paunovic’s side needs to start picking up points if they are to survive the division this season, starting with the Wednesday fixture.

Meanwhile Luton Town have been impressive this season with the club collecting 32 points from their 23 matches to sit in the 13th spot with just one point outside the top half and 10 points above the relegation zone.

They head into the match in a good form having only lost one of their last six matches across all competitions and are coming off a four-match unbeaten run including back-to-back victories in the FA Cup and the league.

Luton were in impressive in their last Championship fixture as they overcame the second-placed Bournemouth with a 3-2 victory at home last Saturday, with Kal Naismith grabbing the winner in the 97th minute of the game.

They will now be buzzing with confidence heading in the Wednesday’s clash where they will seek to keep winning as they aim for a top-half finish.
