New, comments

Do you think the Royals can kick-off the new year with a win?

A draw at Barnsley may not have been the way that Reading imagined ending 2017, but it was predicted by four people in the Prediction League. Three of those also got the 1-1 scoreline spot on - myself, ShiplakeAl and Brum Royal. It tells you just how badly Yann Kermorgant’s form has dropped that there were no correct guesses for him to score the game’s first goal. The updated leaderboard is below.

The Royals begin the new calendar year by hosting bottom of the table Birmingham City, who got their first win in eight games last time out by beating Leeds. 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.

To get the ball rolling, I’m going for a 1-0 win to Reading, with Liam Moore being the first goalscorer.

Good luck!
