The Tilehurst End Prediction League 17/18: Matchday 31 - Middlesbrough (A)

New, comments

Do you think Reading can come away from the long trip up to Boro with a point (or three)?

It’s fair to say that a win over Burton had put the majority of fans in an optimistic mood ahead of last weekend’s game against Millwall, with the majority of predictions foreseeing Reading take at least something from the match. Yet the Royals slumped to a 2-0 defeat at the Mad Stad, and The Inspector was the only predictor to go for a loss, getting the scoreline bang on as well. There were no correct predictions for the first goalscorer, unsurprising considering that it was Leandro Bacuna’s own goal that gave Millwall the lead. The updated leaderboard is below.

This weekend, Jaap Stam’s (yes, he is still in charge!) side make the long trip up to Middlesbrough. 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 Middlesbrough, with Britt Assombalonga being the first goalscorer.

Good luck!
