Will the Cottagers sink the rising Royals?
It has been a good festive period for Fulham, having secured 7 of 9 points. That run of form was sparked off by a fantastic home success over current leaders Leeds as well. The Cottagers have picked up a victory in four of their last five on home soil, so they have the form there to deliver. The overall home form of Fulham this season in the Championship is W8 D2 L3. They have come up with an average of 1.85 goals per home game, taking a clean sheet in a total of 38% of their home fixtures.
Fulham have conceded at an average of just over a goal per game. Striker Bobby Reid has netted three goals in his last two games for the Cottagers. Fulham are on a five-match scoring streak at Craven Cottage and there has not been draw there in any of their last seven fixtures. Fulham have opened the scoring in 8 of their 13 home games thus far, and have been leading at the midway point in six. While Fulham will be facing an in-form Reading, Preston are the only side to have earned more home points this season than Fulham.
Fulham vs Reading Head to Head
Fulham beat Reading 4-1 at the start of October
The Cottagers are unbeaten in three games against Reading
Just one of the last six meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Reading have failed to win any of their last five trips to Craven Cottage (D1 L4)
Can Reading keep up their head of steam?
From looking in desperate trouble near the relegation zone at the start of the month, to a twelve point cushion above it. That is where Reading are at after a fantastic month of December. They are on a five-match unbeaten run of form, winning each of their last three. So they have hit some fantastic form and are suddenly bearing down on the top half of the table. That’s an indicator of how tight things are in the Championship. The Royals are undefeated in their last four away games (W2 D2) and they collected a superb win at Preston on the weekend.
The Royals have not conceded in any of their last four league games now. They are averaging under a goal per game against them on the road this season. Their overall away record for the campaign is poor at W3 D5 L4, but with this current run under their belt, there are clear signs of improvement. Only a quarter of Reading’s away games have made it over 2.5 goals, so this could be a low-scoring game. 10 of Reading’s 13 away goals in this campaign have been netted in the second half of fixtures. They have only opened the scoring in three road games.
