Ahead of the game | Heading into Wolves’ lair

Our preview of the weekend meeting

2 March 2018

At any level, challenges don’t come much bigger than a visit to the league leaders – that’s the task our boys are faced with this weekend at Wolverhampton.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Reading
Saturday 3rd March 2018, 5.30pm
Sky Bet Championship

The Midlands side have made a habit of winning this season – even when we matched them at Madejski Stadium, they still had that little bit of cutting edge which resulted in a 2-0 win.

But they are fallible – in relative terms they’re having a wobble, with two draws and a defeat in their last three games.

And we’ve just as much to play for – so three points would be a welcome boost for the Royals!


As of midday on Friday, tickets are no longer available for away supporters to buy and there are no on-the-day sales at Molineux whatsoever for visiting fans.

EFL title sponsors Sky Bet have league leaders Wolves as the firm favourites, with odds of 2/5 for a home win.  The Royals are 8/1 for victory and the draw is 18/5.

Sky Bet are also running boosts for this televised game.  Modou Barrow to score first and either Reading to win 1-0 or draw 1-1 is available at 50/1, and Jón Daði Böðvarsson is 9/2 to net any time against his old side.


The man in the middle is Andrew Madley – he has overseen three away games for us already this season, although they haven’t been too fruitful… defeats at Preston and Millwall, and a draw in Bolton.

Robert Merchant and James Wilson are on the flanks as assistant referees, while Robert Jones acts as fourth official for this one.
