Swansea City vs Reading Prediction

The home side are favorites in the game and have been the more consistent side throughout the season. Reading are flirting dangerously with relegation and their quest to steer further clear of the drop could spur them on to raise the ante.

However, Swansea City will be banking on home support to scale through and we are predicting Russell Martin's side will secure a comfortable victory.
