          Bristol City vs. Reading Prediction, Tips & Stats

          For our Bristol City vs. Reading prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the home side.

          Two sides with little left to play for meet in the Championship this weekend as Bristol City welcome Reading to Ashton Gate.

          Bristol City currently sit 14th in the Championship with twelve wins, twelve draws and fourteen losses from thirty-eight games this season.

          The Robins have had a fairly frustrating season having often shown flashes of being a side capable of contending for a play-off spot, only to fail to maintain any short bursts of form and ultimately spending the majority of the campaign in mid-table.

          They enter this game amidst a poor run of form too, with Nigel Pearson's side winning on, drawing one and losing three of their last five matches in the Championship, the most recent of which was a 2-0 defeat away at Swansea City.

          Even worse is that they've been dismal going forward in recent weeks having scored just two goals in the last five matches while drawing a blank in four of their last five games.

          Their form at home, however, paints a much brighter picture with The Robins winning three, drawing one and losing one of their last five games on home soil.

          Bristol City's season is over as they sit twelve points clear of the relegation zone and twelve points shy of the play-offs. That may be what is affecting their form and as such they could be a risky pick here.

          Reading currently sit 18th in the Championship with thirteen wins, six draws and nineteen losses from thirty-eight games this season.

          The Royals have had a similar season trajectory to their opponents in that they started like a house on fire and looked a team set to spend the campaign contesting for promotion, only for their form to abruptly fall off a cliff with Paul Ince's men spending the majority of the remainder of the season on a constant decline.

          They enter this game amidst a dismal run of form having failed to win any of their last five games, losing four of them

          Their most recent game saw them draw 1-1 at home to Hull City, with Andy Carroll notching their only goal.

          Their away form is very, very poor having failed to win any of their last nine games on the road in all competitions while losing their last seven on the bounce, scoring just twice in the process.

          Reading did beat Bristol City 2-0 when the two sides met back in October, but this will likely be a completely different game here with Bristol City's decent home form likely too much for The Royals' lack of competency away from home.
