In his midweek predictions for Sky Sports, pundit David Prutton included a scoreline tip for the eagerly anticipated clash between the Royals and the Lilywhites, and went for a 2-1 away win for Alex Neil's side.

The last time the two sides met, back in December last year, Reading recorded their fifth consecutive victory against Preston, with goals from John Swift and Lucas Joao earning the Royals all three points at Deepdale.

As things stand, Preston lie 16th in the table with ten points, while their upcoming opponents are top of the league having won seven of their opening nine matches.

Prutton's further predictions were as follows:

Huddersfield 2-1 Bristol City

Norwich 2-2 Millwall

Sheffield Wed 0-1 Bournemouth

Nottingham Forest 1-1 Coventry

Rotherham 1-1 Luton

Watford 0-1 Stoke City

Derby County 2-1 QPR

Birmingham 1-1 Wycombe

Brentford 3-2 Swansea City
