Reading's clash with Aston Villa promises goals at both ends

Reading's clash with Aston Villa promises goals at both ends

Reading v Aston Villa (BC)

With plenty at stake, one might expect a cagey affair between two relegation rivals, but quite simply neither looks capable of keeping things tight.

Reading have failed to keep a clean sheet in 2013 and both teams have scored in seven of their last eight Premier League games, including last time out at Goodison Park.

Villa meanwhile were unfortunate not to find the net against Manchester City, a game which ended a run of five in which both teams had scored.

Peterborough v Ipswich (CH)

We mentioned last week that Ipswich games aren't exactly Going for Goals material but I firmly believe Saturday's visit to fellow strugglers Peterborough will finally buck the trend.

Town's last seven games would have lost this bet while only 10 goals have been scored in that run but the clash at London Road promises to be quite an attacking affair with both sides desperate for victory in the battle for survival.

By contrast, Posh matches tend to be quite reliable for goals anyway and Darren Ferguson's men head into this fixture on the back of a 3-2 win at Blackburn and a 2-2 home draw with Charlton.

Port Vale v Southend (NH)

The clash between Port Vale and Southend provides this weekend's League Two selection.

Vale sit second - two points behind leaders Gillingham - but the pressure is slightly on after three games without a win so expect a few nerves.

Southend will fancy their chances of a surprise as they look to cut the gap to the play-off places and they have been Going For Goals winners in six of their previous seven matches.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
