That moved them onto a four-match undefeated streak of form in the division, and they have lost only one of their last nine played.

Sheffield United v Reading Head to Head

Reading have won none of their last eight league games against the Blades
United have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven league fixtures against the Royals
Reading News and Form
The Royals took a 2-1 home victory over Blackburn in midweek, snapping a three-match sequence of drawn games that they were on. So they now are unbeaten in four and have lost just one of their last six in the Championship. The Royals have only managed one away league victory all season (D8 L7) and that way success happened all the way back in mid-September at Preston. It means they are without a win in 12 league away games.
They have had their problems in front of goal as they have returned only the 13 goals from their 16 away games. Only 38% of their away fixtures have ended over 2.5 goals. In their last five away games, Reading have returned just two goals in total. That was a big three points that Reading collected against Blackburn as it lifted them out of the relegation zone at the expense of Rotherham. Can they build on it? Reading have been at 0-0 at halftime in exactly half of their away games.
