Sky Sports pundit issues his prediction ahead of Wolves v Reading tonight



Wolves saw their lead at the top of the Championship cut to three points over the weekend after suffering a heavy defeat to Aston Villa.

Just a few weeks ago it seemed as though nobody could catch Nuno Espirito Santo’s men however one win in five games has seen Wolves start to nervously look over their shoulders.

With Cardiff, Villa and Fulham all flying, it means we could have a very exciting end to the season.

The leaders entertain Reading tonight at what could be a nervy and tense Molineux but will expect to get back to winning ways given the Royals struggles this season.

And, despite acknowledging that there is a title race now on, EFL pundit David Prutton reckons Wolves will have too much for the visitors later on.

He predicted a 2-0 win for the West Midlands side, describing it as an ‘absolute banker’ in his regular Sky Sports column.

Wolves won the reverse meeting at the Madejski Stadium by that scoreline although they were very fortunate with keeper John Ruddy producing an outstanding display on the day.

The Verdict

This is a game that Wolves will expect to win but there’s no doubt that there will be real pressure and tension around Molineux if things don’t start well.

However, it’s important the players remain calm as they are still in a great position and have seven of the bottom eight teams to play.

They must also be desperate to put Saturday’s performance behind them and respond with a win tonight.

Thoughts, Wolves and Reading fans? What will the score be tonight? Let us know in the comments below.
