            Reading vs Wigan Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Reading will be aiming to distance themselves from the bottom of the League One table as they are set to host Wigan Athletic at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

            The hosts currently find themselves in 23rd position in the League One table, having amassed just 15 points from their opening 21 league outings. This comes following five wins, four draws and twelve defeats.

            The Royals come into this match on the back of an upturn in their form which has seen them record just one defeat in their last five league outings. This run has included victories over Wycombe and Carlisle and draws against Oxford and Lincoln.

            After a mixed start to their campaign, Wigan currently find themselves in 17 place in the table, after gaining 23 points from their opening 21 league games. This comes following nine wins, four draws and eight defeats.

            In their last league outing, Port Vale snatched a dramatic 3-2 victory over Wigan in a roller coaster clash at Vale Park. Ethan Chislett stole the show, grabbing a stunning hat-trick for the Valiants.

            Vale dominated the first half, Chislett firing them ahead on 21 minutes after a Gavin Massey cross. He doubled the lead just before the break, Oliver Arblaster's clever turn creating the space for a clinical finish.

            Wigan roared back after the break. Chris Sze, on as a substitute, rifled home a first-touch equaliser on 63 minutes. Charlie Wyke then stunned the home crowd, heading in Callum McManaman's cross to level it up. But Chislett had the final say. With seven minutes remaining, he danced through the Wigan defence and slammed the ball into the net, sending Vale Park into raptures.

            The fixture of Reading vs Wigan has a long history, with the two sides first meeting in 1978, a game which Reading won 2-0. In total, these two sides have met on 50 occasions, in which both sides have won 19 games and there have been 12 draws.

            Reading have dominated this fixture's recent history and they have only been defeated on one occasion in the last eight meetings between the two sides. The Royals often score highly in this fixture, with them having scored 3 goals in 3 of their last 5 victories.

            The sides could not be separated when these sides last met in April of this year. Wigan took the lead in the 80th minute through Charlie Hughes' header, but Reading piled on the pressure in the closing stages. Their efforts were rewarded when Meite tapped home from close range in the 93rd minute to send the home fans into raptures.

            Despite being worse off in the league, it is Reading who come into this match as favourites at the bookies and they are currently priced @ 21/20, whilst an away win for Wigan is priced @ 23/10 and a draw is @ 12/5.

            We are backing Reading to win and both teams to score because of their recent dominance of this fixture. Furthermore, Reading have frequently been involved in games where both teams score, with this occurring in all of their last 13 competitive outings.

            Reading Team News

            Meite's hamstring casts doubt on his starting role, with Joao and Carroll vying for the striker spot. Carroll's suspension adds to Paunovic's attacking woes, but Yiadom and Azeez are back to bolster midfield. Moore marshals the defence against Wigan's firepower.

            Wigan Team News

            Wigan will miss influential midfielder Joe Powell through a hamstring injury. This throws a wrench in Leam Richardson's selection plans, with Joe Garner and Callum Massey vying for his spot. Aside from this, there have been no new injury reports ahead of this weekend.
