Luton – Focussing on the Opposition – Reading

Image for Luton – Focussing on the Opposition – Reading

It’s squeaky-bum time, just one more good result for the Hatters, against Reading, this Saturday, will see Luton earn a Championship play-off place.

The nerves are already getting to me, so much balancing on just one game, but the anticipation levels are rising by the hour.

A sold-out Kenilworth Road will be rocking as Luton search for the result that will guarantee qualifying for the lottery that the play-offs often are.

But what do we know about Reading, the team that stand between us and our dream?

Reading have had a difficult season, from the 45 games they played, they’ve won just 13, drawn 8 and lost a colossal 24.

In those 45 games, they’ve scored just 54 goals, a little more than a goal a game but have conceded 86, giving them a goal difference of -32.

With just 41 points accumulated, they are destined to finish in 21st place in the Championship, not a position their manager, the former England international Paul Ince, will be pleased with.

As for recent form, their last 5 games have ended LWDLL, meaning they have taken just 4 points from the last 15 available.

Looking at their top scorers, Johnathan Swift leads the way with 11 goals closely followed by Lucas Joao with 10.

    I see reading are also down to the bare bones with 10 injuries to first teamers as well. So it could be a very interesting game.
