Reading vs Stevenage Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview
Reading vs Stevenage predictions and betting tips for the FA Cup replay fixture on Tuesday evening. Can Stevenage dump the Royals out of the competition?
Reading boss Jaap Stam remains under pressure at the Majeski and he’ll be determined to ensure his side don’t crash out of the FA Cup to lower opposition. The Royals were insipid at the weekend drawing 0-0 with Hull City but were second best throughout and only created one decent opportunity. Stevenage picked up a decent point at the Globe Arena with a late equaliser although they haven’t been helped by injuries and illness in the camp this week. See our Reading vs Stevenage predictions below and see who we fancy coming out on top in this FA Cup clash.
Reading vs Stevenage Predictions
Jaap Stam saw Paul McShane and John Swift limped off during his side’s draw against Hull and the former defender will not want to lose any more players here. He is set to make a few changes for this this match and it clearly isn’t Reading’s priority. Whilst Stevenage are far better at the Lamex than on their travels, I still think they could get hold their own during the 90 minutes. The first of tonight’s Reading vs Stevenage predictions is Stevenage +1 Handicap.
The hosts are struggling to score goals and their profligacy in front of goal could continue here. Stevenage aren’t the kind of side to net many goals on the road and they’ve conceded just three times in four matches. This could be a slow-burner. The second of our Reading vs Stevenage predictions is Under 2.5 Goals.
Anytime Goalscorer Predictions
There aren’t many goalscorers to select with too much conviction in the Reading squad but Mo Barrow is likely to stretch the Stevenage backline and he could provide the spark they need, particularly if the game goes to extra time. For the last of our Reading vs Stevenage predictions, we’re looking at Mo Barrow to score anytime.
Reading vs Stevenage Team News
Reading are likely to be without John Swift and Paul McShane for this clash, both of whom are unlikely to be risked. Jordan Obita, Stephen Quinn and Joseph Mendes remain on the sidelines. Young fullback Omar Richards is likely to get a game.
Stevenage have seen their squad hit by an illness bug but the majority of their players have now recovered. Mark McKee could come back after missing the game against Morecambe. Tom King signed on loan from Millwall and has impressed between the sticks.
