Match Summary

One to Watch: Eberechi Eze

The 20-year-old returned to the West London club in the summer after a successful spell on loan at Wycombe Wanderers. Eze scored five times from 20 League Two appearances and has continued where he left off this term with three strikes as the Hoops’ current top scorer. The youngster can play as a No10, through the middle and out wide and this versatility has allowed McClaren to go with two additional forwards in the eleven. Eze’s bright form has not gone unnoticed, with scouts from Tottenham, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool all interested spectators at Loftus Road. Eze is 10/3 to net anytime during the 90.

This Championship preview begins with 20th place Reading. The hosts picked up a point away at promotion hopefuls Brentford but were left to rue their defensive fragility. Bees defender Yoann Barbet equalised late in stoppage time but the result was a step in the right direction for Paul Clement’s men. The former Swansea boss is expected to go with the same line-up with six-goal Jón Dadi Bödvarsson leading the line.

Visitors QPR have experienced similar difficulties this season and sit a solitary point above the home side. Steve McClaren’s side lost their first four games of the campaign but have won three of their following six fixtures. The ex-England manager was boosted by the arrivals of forwards Nahki Wells and Tomer Hemed late in August and the Premier League owned duo should both start in a two pronged attack.

Reading vs Queens Park Rangers Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Paul Clement arrest Reading’s slump before it’s too late?

Paul Clement was brought in to the club after Jaap Stam’s dismissal in March, and the ex-Chelsea No 2 achieved his first objective, successfully steering Reading away from relegation at the end of 2017-18. The Royals had endured a miserable seven months and could easily have been playing in League One if the change was made any later. Consequently, the hosts preserved their status in the division but have struggled again this time out. Reading had to wait until their seventh match to get their first victory on the board but the signs have been promising. Travelling party QPR finished the previous season comfortably in midtable and a similar finish this year would be well received.

Football predictions for this Championship preview show Reading at 13/10 to claim victory. The Royals have arguably performed better than their league position reveals but are improving. Reading have picked up seven points from their last four clashes and will fancy their chances of continuing this mini run of good form.

Further Championship predictions highlight QPR at 21/10 to register the win. McClaren was hotly tipped to be the first boss to be dismissed but has turned things around somewhat. The Hoops have a tough set of fixtures on the horizon and it’s in their best interests to push for all three points on Tuesday.

The stalemate is 9/4 in the latest football betting predictions market and has value as the primary objective for both outfits is to avoid defeat.

Bödvarsson is the 9/2 favourite to open the scoring in the contest. The Icelandic hitman has a goal haul only bettered by Jay Rodriguez and Neal Maupay and could feasibly be a January target for the top-six if his good run continues.

QPR loanee Wells is 6/1 in the same first scorer market. The Burnley owned forward didn’t get a real chance to prove himself in the top flight and will relish the opportunity to play regular football again. Meanwhile, strike partner Hemed is 9/4 in the anytime market and the both teams to score prediction offer is available at 5/6.

Predicted Score: Reading 2 - 1 Queens Park Rangers
