In-form Bournemouth take on Reading in the Championship on Saturday. Leaders Reading are on a poor run of form after losing their last three matches.

Bournemouth Form

Bournemouth’s target of an immediate return to the Premier League has got off to a solid start. The Cherries are sat 4th in the table after 11 games.

Jason Tindall’s team have won two of their last four matches, starting with a 1-0 victory over Bristol City. They were then held to a 1-1 draw at home to Derby County.

Bournemouth then lost 1-0 at Sheffield Wednesday but bounced back with a 3-1 win over Birmingham last time out.

Arnaut Groeneveld opened the scoring, while David Brooks bagged a brace. Bournemouth are also unbeaten in five matches at home, winning three.

Bournemouth Team News

Bournemouth will be without defender Steve Cook due to suspension.

Reading Form

After an amazing start to the new Championship season, Reading found themselves in a rut heading into the international break.

The Royals have lost each of their last three matches in the Championship, starting with a 3-2 defeat away to Coventry City.

That was then followed by successive 3-0 home defeats, first to Preston before Stoke then came away from the Madejski Stadium with three points.

Tyrese Fletcher, Steven Fletcher and Jacob Brown goals ensured Reading now have just a one-point buffer at the top of the Championship table.

Reading Team News

Reading will again be without influential midfielder John Swift due to a hamstring problem. Felipe Araruna is also a doubt. 

Bournemouth vs Reading Head to Head

Bournemouth have 45 wins in this fixture compared to Reading’s 42. There have also been 25 draws. 

Bournemouth have won the last four head to head meetings between the sides.
