A big bottom of the table battle on Tuesday night as Rotherham travel south to take on Reading in a clash where both teams will be desperate for the points.Reading Form Guide
Reading are in 18th position, and currently out of trouble for now, though they could find themselves dragged into the battle if they are not careful. They are nine points clear of the relegation zone, but haven't won any of their last six games, with three wins and three draws during that period, a run that they really need to improve on before it's too late.
Last weekend, Reading lost 1-0 against Sunderland, and they've rotated between drawing and losing games for the past few weeks. Their last point came from a 2-2 home draw with Watford, a good point, but more is needed. The team really needs to find a win from somewhere, and given they are facing a relegation rival here, points are even more important.Rotherham Form Guide
Rotherham are down in 20th position in the league, they are five points below Reading in the standings, and four points above the bottom three. It is fair to say Rotherham are now firmly in the relegation scrap, though they have been picking up points recently, to keep ahead of the trouble for now.
They come here on the back of a run that has seen them go four games unbeaten in the Championship. However, just one of those has been a win, with three draws in a row since then. Turning draws into wins will be their priority right now, and could be the difference between survival and the drop to League One. The Millers drew 0-0 with Blackpool at the weekend, and 0-0 with Shefield United the weekend before.Match Prediction
Rotherham are playing fairly well, but are unable to win games at the moment, and that steers the bet here. Rather than backing Rotherham to win, the pick is Rotherham on the double chance market, covering them to win or the draw. Reading are struggling to win themselves, and the away side are fancied to take something from the contest.
