Reading v Cardiff

Paul Ince insists it will take time before Reading supporters see the team at full strength and it will be worthwhile for the Royals to oppose in their first championship home game of the season against Cardiff.

Transfer embargoes have certainly prevented recruitment, but with many influential first-team members forced to start campaigns on the sidelines, Ince’s job has become more difficult. .

The absence of star striker Lucas Joan appears to be the most costly, but with Scott Dunn, Sam Hutchinson, Femi Aziz, George Paskas, Dejan Tetec and Liam Moore also on the treatment table, an experienced We are short of staff.

Shane Long was the only senior outfielder on the bench against Blackpool last weekend, so the Royals could be the team to face in the coming weeks.

With that in mind, Cardiff are paying a heavy price to attack at the Madejski Stadium. Especially after he won 1-0 at home to pre-season title contenders Norwich.

Romain Sawyers and former Royal Andy Linomota shined on their debuts, as the Bluebirds limited Norwich to one shot on target.

Eight of Steve Morrison’s 11 starts against the Canaries were first appearances, but they are on track and able to follow up with Berkshire.

Portsmouth v Lincoln

Portsmouth saw the kick-start of their new League One campaign with a tenacious second half, as they scored a thrilling 3-3 draw at Sheffield on Wednesday. Maximum points at home must be directed towards Lincoln.

Pompeii finished in 10th place in the third division last season, but few players have won at home. At home he won eight and in his final ten games he drew two.

That streak of form featured victories over promoted pairs Rotherham and Wigan, while also claiming a 3–2 victory over visiting Lincoln in April.

And Danny Cowley’s team should once again be too strong for the Imps at the Fratton Park fortress, which won the scalps of Sunderland, Bolton and Oxford last season.

Lincoln drew 1-1 at home to promote Exeter in the opener, but lost seven of their last 10 away trips last season.

Hartlepool v AFC Wimbledon

Paul Hartley was forced to watch as his ill-fated Hartlepool side lost 4-0 at Walsall last Saturday and could see another disastrous result at home to AFC Wimbledon.

Much has changed in Hartlepool over the summer, and former Cove Rangers boss Hartley has brought in 15 recruits, including six unproven EFL performers from Scotland.

Walsall, who dominated shooting 21-4, could have won more easily, suggesting Hartley may need time to execute on his plan.

This does not bode well for a visit to AFC Wimbledon. He was able to show that his 2-0 win at home to Gillingham last Saturday took a heavy weight off his shoulders.

The Wombles went 27 winless in their League One campaign last season. This he dates back to December.

Wimbledon have lost some of their star names following relegation last season, but have managed to retain Ayoub Atal and inject more experience into their backline with the acquisition of Chris Gunter and Alex Pearce. did.

Andreas Wyman Bristol City v Sunderland
6-1 in bet365

Andreas Wyman scored 22 goals for Bristol City in last season’s Championship, continuing where he left off last Saturday with the opening goal in a loss to Hull. This fixture looks packed with goals and the prolific Austrian might land the first blow.
