Leeds Next For Reading - At 39 Pounds A Ticket

Reading travel to second placed Leeds United on Saturday with the home side trying to keep their place in the automatic promotion places after a run of poor recent form. Leeds were points clear at the top of the Championship but now find themselves four points behind leaders West Brom as their season threatens to collapse as usual. They managed to scrape past Bristol City at home by a single goal last weekend after drawing at Brentford and losing both away at Forest and home against Wigan. The Royals may fancy their chances against a side that could well find themselves staying put in the Championship next season, with plenty of teams in the play-off positions hoping to claim a top two finish.
The Royals are around 19/2 for an away victory on Saturday. Given Leeds are currently 17th in the home form table and Reading sit second in the away form table it seems like good value!

You can also use this guide to find something that might give a return should Reading follow up their 3-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday last weekend with another victory on the road. Reading are a long way away from the top six but another 3 points would essentially secure Championship for another season.
There's been a lot in the news this week with Leeds, the self proclaimed biggest club in the Championship, mocking Reading for being unable to sell out the away end. This comes from a club who are charging an extortionate 39 pounds for the privilege of watching the game. Reading of course have been strong voices in the "twenty in plenty" campaign to make the cost of watching live football affordable. Leeds are at the other end of the scale trying their best to rip off fans. It is hardly suprising they struggle to sell tickets to away supporters who are used to much reduced ticket prices. Leeds fans who traveled to the Madejski Stadium back in November would have course paid nearly half the price for their tickets. I would hope Reading continue to stick to their cheap ticket pledge, but it must be tempting to make an exception for the visit of Leeds next season.
Reading are the latest club to not sell out their away allocation, so extra tickets have now been made available to #LUFC fans in the West Stand— Leeds United (@LUFC) February 17, 2020
