It seems that Reading’s win over Leeds didn’t do much to boost the confidence of either players or fans, as last week the Royals slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Sheffield United that many people predicted. A total of eight people correctly guessed that Jaap Stam’s side would leave Bramall Lane with nothing, with five of those - myself, Will Jones, JackRonan, Fylde coast royal and The inspector - getting the scoreline spot on. No one said that Paul Coutts would get the game’s first goal, but the updated leaderboard is below.
This weekend, Middlesbrough visit the Madejski Stadium in just as bad form as Reading. 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 think the score will be 1-1, with Sone Aluko being the first goalscorer. This series is of course done alongside Reading FC Away Days, and by watching James’ video on YouTube, you can find out what he thinks will happen.
