            Reading vs Blackpool Preview, Tips & Stats

            Blackpool make the trip south to take on Reading in the early Saturday kick off in League One this weekend. In the last week of the regular season Blackpool could still steal a spot in the Play-offs with a win, whereas Reading are safe from relegation already.

            Reading currently sit 17th in League One after 45 games. The Royals have 15 wins, 11 draws and 19 losses, leaving them on 50 points, six points above the relegation zone.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Reading have one win, two draws and two losses.

            Lewis Wing and Paul Mukairu were on the scoresheet for Reading against Bolton. However, a hat-trick from Aaron Collins and a brace from Jon Daoi Bodvarsson gave Bolton the 5 - 2 win. Back at home, Reading hosted Lincoln. Freddie Draper opened the scoring for Lincoln in the 72nd minute but Tyler Bindon popped up with a goal in the 83rd minute to give Reading the 1 - 1 draw.

            Reading were finally back to winning ways against Bristol Rovers. Sam Smith gave Reading the lead in the eighth minute and Wing doubled the lead on the stroke of halftime. Reading couldn’t find another in the second half and took home a 2 - 0 win. Smith was on the scoresheet again for Reading, this time against Barnsley, but Adam Phillips equalised before halftime. Wing thought he had won it for Reading with his goal in the 81st minute, but Fabio Jalo’s goal just two minutes later gave Barnsley the 2 - 2 draw.

            The last time out for Reading was against Burton Albion. Mason Bennett and Mustapha Carayol gave Burton the 2 - 0 lead at the ten minute mark. Wing got on the scoresheet in the first half but Bobby Kamwa made it 3 - 1 at halftime. Smith did convert a penalty on the hour mark but Burton held on for a 3 - 2 win.

            Blackpool, on the other hand, currently sit eighth in League One. In 45 games, Blackpool have 21 wins, ten draws and 14 losses which leaves them on 73 points, one point from the last Play-off spot.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Blackpool have four wins and one draw.

            Blackpool had five shots on target in comparison to Wycombe who had just one, however, neither could convert any of these shots as the game finished in a 0 - 0 draw. Blackpool were back to scoring against Cambridge United as Sonny Carey scored the only goal of the game in the 30th minute for a 1 - 0 win for Blackpool.

            It was another 1 - 0 win for Blackpool, this time against Fleetwood. Jake Beesley found the back of the net in the first half to give Blackpool the 1 - 0 win. The trip to Carlisle saw Karamoko Dembele open the scoring in the first minute. Carlisle had zero shots on target as Blackpool picked up yet another 1 - 0 win.

            The most recent outing for Blackpool was against Barnsley. Cary, James Husband and Hayden Coulson gave Blackpool the 3 - 0 lead early in the second half. John McAtee and Phillips did score in the second half but Blackpool held on for a 3 - 2 win.

            Reading and Blackpool have met 47 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1926. Reading have the better record in this fixture with 19 wins in comparison to Blackpool’s 16 wins, the other 12 games ending in a draw.
