It seems that Paul Clement’s arrival in Berkshire boosted optimism levels ahead of Friday’s clash with QPR, with eight people predicting wins for Reading over the West London side. They were of course correct, as the Royals ran out 1-0 winners, a scoreline that two people got spot on - JackRonan and KildareRoyal. The latter was also the only punter to correctly guess Sone Aluko to score the game’s first goal, meaning he picks up the maximum three points. The updated leaderboard is below.
Tonight, Reading travel to Aston Villa, whose promotion challenge has stuttered of late - they haven’t won any of their previous three games. 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 Aston Villa, with Jack Grealish being the first goalscorer.
