Reading vs. Swansea City Match Analysis and Prediction

With a chance to reach the Championship playoffs, Swansea City will be looking to tighten their braces on the final day. The side will take on mid-table placed Reading at the Madejski Stadium. The match schedules for Wednesday with kickoff at 9:30 pm.

Steve Cooper might feel like his side should be in contention for a top-six finish. However, he might cherish the fact that the side has a chance to make the playoffs. The chances of Cardiff City losing a home game to Hull City seems remote. However, the Potters might pull off an upsetting win against out of form Nottingham Forest.

The case leaves Cooper with no option but to pick up the three points. A win this Wednesday will extend the side’s run from the last six games to 13 points. The away game plays well with Copper’s record this season in their outings.

Reading will enjoy the stay on top of the Championship after escaping relegation troubles since Mark Bowen took over. The side is currently 15th on the table with 56 points, eight points off the relegation drop zone.

The Welshman joined the side amid heavy criticism over his appointment in the camp. However, he has proved his worth with the side recording 14 wins, and 12 draws from 39 matches. The consistency has given the Royals the needed triumph to stay of the mid-table ranking.
