On Saturday afternoon, Barnsley and Reading will meet at Oakwell in a contest that might decide the Championship relegation race.

Barnsley vs Reading Predictions
Barnsley will be looking to get back on track after losing 2-0 to Sheffield United in their previous league match. They’ve had under 2.5 goals in their previous five games across all competitions, and they’re hoping to get another five points to get out of the relegation zone.
Reading, on the other hand, is just one point ahead of them in 21st place on the standings with 33 points. They won 11 games out of 38 played, drew 6 times, and lost 21 times. They have the league’s second-worst defense, having given up 73 goals so far.
Barnsley has won all of their home league games this season. Their last three home h2hs have all ended in a 1-1 draw.
Reading manager Paul Ince has only picked up two points in his last nine league-away matches, indicating their poor road form. They’ve also lost two of their last three league away games. As a result of their recent unexpected home form, we expect a draw this weekend.
