The Tilehurst End Prediction League: Matchday 3 - Newcastle (A)

New, comments

Can Reading defeat Championship title favourites Newcastle, who are winless in their opening two games?

So it seems we all got too confident ahead of the trip to Wolves at the weekend, as very few people predicted Reading to lose at Molineux.

Compared to the large number of points handed out following the win over Preston, just five people predicted a win for Wolves. And only two of those went for a 2-0 win to the hosts - well done to glorygerbil and illinois_royal! It's also safe to say that no one thought right-back Matt Doherty would get the game's first goal!

Next up is a visit to Newcastle United, who have lost their opening two games back in the Championship, so can Reading beat them? All you have to do is guess the score of the game and say who you think will score the first goal in the comments below. A correct score earns two points, a correct result earns one point as does a correct first goalscorer.

I'm going for a 2-1 Newcastle win with Jamaal Lascelles the first goalscorer. This series is of course done alongside Reading FC Away Days, and by watching their video below you can find out what James and Adam think will happen.

Good Luck! The current table is below the video...
