Cardiff vs Reading Preview

Victory for Neil Warnock’s side at Cardiff City Stadium will secure their place in the Premier League next season and any other result will leave them sweating on the outcome of Fulham’s match at St Andrews.

Icelandic midfielder Aron Gunnarsson is set miss what could be the Bluebirds last game in the Championship after picking up an injury against Hull. Derby loanee Craig Bryson is expected to fill in. Welsh international defender Jazz Richards has returned to training but is unlikely to feature having been out of action since January.

Reading will hope they have already done enough to survive another season as it will require Barnsley, Burton and Birmingham all to win in order to relegate the Royals should they lose to Cardiff. Paul Clement is expected to make sweeping changes after Reading’s 4-0 home defeat to Ipswich last weekend. There could be opportunities for a number of fringe players with 20-year-old forward Sam Smith and midfielder George Evan in line to start. Joey van den Berg is ready to return and Leandro Bacuna could return to the back four after serving his suspension.

Cardiff vs Reading Prediction

The Bluebirds rarely slip up at home and have beaten all the bottom clubs up to Sheffield Wednesday at the Cardiff City Stadium this season.

It’s been a nervy climax for Warnock’s men having lost three of the last six but last week’s 2-0 victory at Hull has put them in the driving seat for automatic promotion.

Reading have struggled for consistency throughout this campaign and arrive in Cardiff with only two wins from the last 16 Championship matches. They have lost the last five successive away games, failing to score in four.

Cardiff have conceded in each of the last five homes but with the exception of champions elect Wolverhampton, the Bluebirds continue to find a way to win. Reading don’t appear to be putting up much of a fight and we predict Cardiff to secure second spot with a win to nil.
