Live on Sky Sports: Wolverhampton Wanderers v Reading

24 December 2015

There's live Boxing Day action this weekend, as Wolverhampton Wanderers host Reading at Molineux.

The match will bring the curtain down on one of the most eagerly-awaited footballing days of the season, and you can catch it on Sky Sports. 


Kenny Jackett's side are in need of some festive cheer after picking up just one Sky Bet Championship win since October. 

They were humbled at Hillsborough last weekend, when Sheffield Wendesday came from behind to beat them 4-1 in their latest loss. 

As well as a lack of wins, the previous two games have seen them ship seven goals - four to Wednesday and three to Leeds United - meaning they sit 17th in the standings. 


The Royals ended a four-game losing streak in their last fixture, inflicting a first defeat on Blackburn Rovers under Paul Lambert. 

The game was Brian McDermott's first back in charge at Reading, after he re-joined the club as manager last week. 

A strong Christmas period could change the fortunes suffered over the last month, and their table position is still positive. 

They trail Ipswich Town in the first of the Play-Off positions by just four points with 24 games still left to play, and will be buoyed by the returning McDermott, who led them to the Championship title and promotion in 2012. 

Royal record 

Reading come into the game having not suffered defeat to Wolves in more than a decade. 

The pair have met six times since Wolves last triumphed, with two draws and four Royals wins taking place. 

Three of those have come at Molineux too, where Reading have accumulated a 7-1 aggregate scoreline in that time. The last win came in February, after Pavel Pogrebnyak and Danny Williams netted in a 2-1 victory. 

Williams' stunner earns #GoalOfTheWeekend 

And speaking of Danny Williams, we'll find any excuse to revisit his stunning winner against Blackburn from last Sunday. 

The Royals prevailed 1-0 at the Madejski Stadium, courtesy of Williams' sublime first-half effort.
