West Brom will be looking for the win
West Brom will be looking for the win

Reading host West Brom at the Madejski Stadium in the EFL Championship on Saturday, with both sides having nothing left to play for this season.

Reading are currently 21st in the league, seven points above the relegation zone. With two games left this season, Paul Ince's side have already avoided relegation and can now look ahead to next season. They will hope to finish off the season strongly with a win against West Brom on Saturday.

West Brom, on the other hand, are 13th in the table, eight points off the top six. Following a terrible string of recent results, Steve Bruce will be disappointed that his side did not qualify for the playoffs, despite such a strong start to the season.

"We've tried to enjoy it and play with freedom, and the results have shown - so it’s good to have our sxafety signed and sealed, so we can enjoy the last few weeks!"@jnrhoilett has his say ahead of #REAWBA πŸ’¬

Despite neither team having anything left to play for, they will both hope to end the campaign strong.

Reading vs West Brom Head-to-Head

West Brom have dominated the recent head-to-head record between the two sides and are unbeaten in their last five meetings against Reading, winning three of them.

West Brom came away as 1-0 winners in the reverse fixture earlier this season. Callum Robinson's goal was enough to secure all three points on the night.
