Recent respective form guides
Reading have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. While Royals have scored 14, a worringly large 17 have been leaked at the other end.
Everton's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. A generous 9 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.
Reading are stuck down in the relegation zone of Barclays Premier League with a return of just 6 points from their 10 games thus far.
Everton's total of 20 points from their 11 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Barclays Premier League.
