Take it as Read at 7/2

Live on Skysports 2: Sat 12.45: Reading (9/4, Coral) can beat Southampton in a potentially high-scoring Premier League grudge match.

Rock bottom Reading are seven points adrift of safety with the same number of matches left to play, which essentially means that the home clash against Southampton is a must-win affair.

To add further spice to an already crucial affair, the contest sees new Reading boss Nigel Adkins come face-to-face with the club that controversially sacked him a few months ago and he would surely love nothing more than to improve his team’s survival hopes while dragging his former employers back towards the drop zone.

Bookies though, fancy Saints following their victory over Chelsea last weekend, Betfred installing them as 5/4 favourites for the points at the Madejski Stadium, where it’s 13/5 (BetVictor) for the spoils to be shared.

However, on home soil, with added motivation and up against a visiting side that has manages just two away successes all season, Adkins’ charges have perhaps been underestimated and at 9/4 via Coral they look to have been overpriced.

Moreover, in what should be a high scoring affair, punters can boost the odds by combining the home success with a tally of more than 2.5 goals at 7/2 via bet365.

Recommended Bets:
Reading to win and over 2.5 goals in the match – 7/2 (bet365)
