So, here we go again. Many will say that the next nine months of Championship football will be unpredictable, but that doesn’t stop us trying to guess the outcome of each and every game.
That is exactly the aim of The Tilehurst End Fans Prediction League, which is back for it’s second season. In 2016/17, EthanRFC_ took home the title, making him the man to beat this time around. You can check out the final leaderboard from the last campaign here.
If you’ve forgotten the rules, then fear not. All you need to do is leave your prediction of the score and who will net the game’s first goal in the comments section of this article. A correct score (1-0, 2-2 etc.) will earn you two points and a correct result (win/loss/draw) will earn you one point. If you guess the game's first goalscorer correctly, you'll get a bonus point too. The person with the most points at the end of the season will win a TTE related prize.
Up first is of course a trip to QPR this afternoon, with the last two ‘Hoops Derbies’ played at Loftus Road finishing 1-1. Nonetheless, I’m plumping for a 1-0 win to Reading, with Jon Dadi Bodvarsson to score the first goal. Once again, we are running the Prediction League in conjunction with Reading Away Days over on YouTube, and by watching James’ video below you can find out what hill thinks will happen.
Finally, a quick pointer to our full-season predictions article, where you can have your say on who you think will be Reading’s top scorer, dirtiest player and a host of other things including the Royals’ final league position. Go check it out!
