Match Preview | Wolves vs Reading

The first of back-to-back home games provides Wolves with an opportunity to get back on track, as Reading make the trip to Molineux for tonight’s rearranged Sky Bet Championship fixture.

The original fixture, planned for ten days ago, was beaten by the weather, so Wolves and Reading will now do battle under the Molineux lights. Since then, Nuno’s side have experienced mixed emotions, with an impressive victory at Elland Road last week followed up with a disappointing result against Aston Villa on Saturday. However, with ten games remaining, Wolves remain seven points ahead of their Midlands rivals in third. After a run of three consecutive away games, Nuno will be pleased his side return to Molineux this week, where they’ve lost just twice all season.

The Opposition

Reading are flirting with the relegation zone in the Championship but still hold a six-point cushion on Birmingham City in 22nd. Penalty kicks away from the Premier League last season, Jaap Stam’s side have had a tougher campaign this season and currently sit 19th on 36 points. The Royals are winless in seven matches but have drawn their previous two, at home to Bolton Wanderers and Leeds United. Tuesday’s game also provides Dave Edwards and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and a first return to Molineux since departing in the summer.

Around The Championship

Tuesday sees six rearranged fixtures taking place in the Championship, with Cardiff City travelling to Brentford. Aston Villa play host to QPR and Sheffield United welcome Burton Albion to Bramall Lane. Elsewhere, Barnsley meet Norwich City and Ipswich Town face Hull City at Portman Road.
