Peterborough – Reading Match Preview
- The Championship relegation race is hotting up and it doesn’t get much bigger than this clash between two of the leading candidates for the drop in Peterborough and Reading, who have remarkably conceded 120 league goals between them! The importance of this game therefore won’t be lost on neither side, but for ‘Posh’ in particular, who are winless in the league in 2022 (D1, L5), it’s a sense of now or never with a trip to 23rd-placed Derby also coming at the weekend.
- Three home league losses in a row will heighten the nerves around the Weston Homes Stadium at kick-off, though Peterborough fans will know that a victory could see their side end the matchday outside of the drop zone for the first time since early November. Peterborough need to urgently find a route to goal though, after netting a paltry three times across their last six home league games (W1, D1, L4).
- Peterborough’s goalscoring plight must be music to the ears of Reading who are looking to avoid another defeat here which would inflict a joint-record of eight consecutive league losses on the club, a feat last suffered in the Premier League during 2007/08. Given the ‘Royals’ have also lost 12 of their 17 league visits to Peterborough though (W2, D3), avoiding defeat will be easier said than done.
- A 6-0 defeat ensued in their last away H2H, and with more planned protests by Reading supporters, another loss would send their season into turmoil. Sinking to the third tier of English football for the first time since 2001/02 is fast becoming a possibility and having conceded 2+ goals in each of their last eight matches, another leaky display could see Reading drop into the relegation zone for the first time since losing on matchday 10.
- Players to watch: Jonson Clarke-Harris is one of just two Peterborough players to score across their last 630 minutes of home league football, whilst Reading’s Lucas João netted only his second goal of the season last time out against Coventry, both of which have been game openers.
- Hot stat: Of Peterborough’s 60 league goals conceded, 38% came beyond the 75th minute.
