          Peterborough vs Reading Prediction, Tips & Stats

          In-form Peterborough United host struggling Reading on Boxing Day, with three points vital for both teams. When the two sides met on the opening weekend, the Posh defeated the Royals 1-0.

          Peterborough

          Peterborough are on fire at the moment, with Darren Ferguson’s side winning all of their last five matches. The Posh are in second currently, winning 13 of their 22 matches. They’re also the top scorers in League One, netting 43 times this season.

          Peterborough have also conceded less than a goal per game, however, they had to complete a second-half comeback to beat Shrewsbury 2-1 this weekend.

          Reading

          Reading have struggled at times this season, and they’ve only won six of their 22 matches. That record, combined with their -4 point deduction, has put the Royals in 21st place. Their biggest issue this season has been in the defensive department, with the team conceding the second most goals in League One, 35.

          The Royals also don’t perform massively well in attack, scoring just 1.23 per game on average, but last time out, they beat Wigan 2-0 at home. The hosts had less of the ball, but they were dangerous on the counter.

          Verdict?

          Peterborough have only lost one home game all season, winning 70% of their home matches. Whereas Reading have the worst away record in the league, losing eight of their ten matches.

          The final prediction is Peterborough 2-1 Reading.
