This is the exact type of fixture that Reading need right now. Inconsistent form has cost the Royals some important points, but they can make amends with a good performance and win at Wycombe on Tuesday night.
Basement boys Wycombe Wanderers have only amassed 20 points so far and look destined for the drop but you just never know what can happen in a derby. As the pressure lifts, teams in the relegation zone tend to do well against the bigger boys. Wycombe will also cherish the thought of stepping up their game against a local rival, however with the Wanderers only winning one of their last eight league games, it’s hard to look beyond a Reading win.
Paunovic calls on his warriors to step up
Wycombe’s home form won’t do much to comfort them either as they haven’t won at home in four games. There’s more doom predicted too as they haven’t beaten Reading in the last three attempts.
Paunovic knows recent results haven’t gone his way but stated that “It will be a war out there – we are ready for that. We know what’s coming, and we have to have our warriors ready for battle.”
It’s not a guaranteed three points, as nothing is ever guaranteed in football but Reading are natural favourites here. The correct prediction of a 2-0 away win is priced up at 15/2 or 8.5 and a clean sheet would be a huge step in the right direction for Paunovic’s men. He wants an immediate reaction, and the home of the league’s whipping boys is the right place to get one!
