Despite Reading going into Saturday’s clash with Middlesbrough having won just one of their last seven league games, it seemed many fans were confident of a result against an admittedly also out of form Teeside outfit, with plenty of guesses for draws or home wins in the Prediction League. Yet 2-0 to Boro it finished, a defeat that just three people predicted, with no correct predictions for the exact scoreline or the first goalscorer, which was Grant Leadbitter. Nonetheless, the updated leaderboard is below.
It’s a second successive home game for the Royals tonight, with Nottingham Forest visiting the Madejski Stadium looking to make it three wins in a row and climb into the top six - oh to be in that position! 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 Sam Smith 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.
